What's prison like? Is it boring? What did you do to keep busy? Also, how did you get in touch with Oxycontin?
Sorry if this is long, but we're way to similar... I've also been struggling for 2 years to get clean. Though I had a script of narcotics for 6 years and then was suddenly let go due to my doctor getting suspended for smoking bud..
Thankfully I've had a good support system but heroin destroyed me in everyway imaginable. It wasn't till last year that I got back on my maintenance medicine, Suboxone.
Here in Ohio it's especially bad. Everyone knows someone who's using or OD'd. So bad here that the cops let me go twice and just confiscated the heroin I had. It's such a lost cause here sadly. **We just got full body x-rays installed in county, only for 3 inmate's to OD 4 days later**
Question is, do you guys have the scanners yet? **Also for your own well being have you wiped your numbers and stopped hanging out with the same people you use to use with? That's super important!**
#Edit: please keep yourself busy during these times, write till you can't move your hands. Right now is very dangerous, your tolerance has dropped and if you do relapse your chances of overdosing drastically increase! Please, for us man
Last edit for op: I wanted to share a tid bit from a great book [Chasing the Scream](https://youtu.be/ao8L-0nSYzg
). This is a YouTube clip on why rehab is such a failure and just a great little watch
What security level was your prison (or section of the prison)?

Is it difficult to stay clean in prison?

Hey there mate! So i am a 28 year old guy from Germany who started working in a stationary "Eingliederungshilfe für Abhänigkeitserkrankte" (social inclusion help for addicted). The social inclusion help in Germany is basically for diabled people with the aim to prevent social impairments to live within society (addiction is viewed as an disability). We are working with the so called Community reinforcmend approach which aim is to boost not drug related social areas of the clients. So my question to you is: What area of your Life(in your opinion) would help you the most to stay away from drug abuse? Is there a certain way in which you dont like to be approached by profefessionals? Sorry for my english and the best of luck to you stay strong
Is it possible to go to prison and stay pretty clean? By that I mean out of trouble? From both the staff and fellow prisoners? I guess, say you go and mind your own business, stay friendly with people who you find cool, can you avoid being messed with? We always hear stories about people getting raped or beat up. How prevalent is violence if you're not seeking it?
Have you seen or experienced sex between inmates? How frequent would you say it is?
