(Original Air Date: 10/28/05) Being a mom is hard enough, but imagine juggling soccer, PTA meetings, homework and carpools all while trying to cover up a secret life of drug addiction. Dr. Phil follows up with some moms who say they were junkies. Joani, a mother of two, couldn't get through a half hour without shooting up -- and she was a nurse in a drug rehabilitation center! It's been six months -- how is she now? Then, Stephanie was addicted to Vicodin and took 60 times the recommended dosage every day. She's been clean for four months, but now has a new problem. Plus, a viewer inspired by Stephanie checks herself into rehab. Join the discussion.

Feel the SAME

I was extremely intrigued with the story about Stepanie and Cara (soccer moms with a vicodin addiction)  Having a "hidden vicodin" addiction myself I was intrigued by their story.  I am not making excuses but my addiction started due to a medical problem that required and still requires medication.  I have tried myself quite a number of times to quite but the physical withdrawals are untolerable. I went as far to call the Florida Rapid Detox center.  The disappointing point was when I called I was told that they do not accept insurance. 

I was wondering if anyone knows of a place where health insurance is accepted?  It is a shame that the physical and mental "will & want" is there but the financial availabilty is not.
