My wife got a prescription to Percocet after she had our baby, but I don’t think she’s stopped using. She refused to breast feed, and keeps going to different doctors saying that the epidural messed up her back. Last night, I caught her in my mom’s medicine cabinet while we were over visiting with the baby. She’s not my wife anymore. How long does it take to get addicted to Percocet?

If she’s already wired for addiction, then all it takes is one use. That sounds scary, but it can be true. It sounds like she’s doing something called doctor shopping, and stealing drugs is a felony. If you want to keep your wife out of jail and alive, get her into rehab. You may need an intervention.

She won’t be much of a mother if she keeps it up. Addiction is a very real disease, and all it takes is that chemical reaction to drugs to happen in the brain once for someone to get hooked. Physical addiction usually takes about ten days, and she’ll go through withdrawals. You have to tell her she has a problem—she may not know how bad it is.
