  5. What is narcotic abuse?
Asked: 2018-10-05 14:17:24
I’ve been living back at home and overheard my parents arguing and my mom yelled at my Dad over his “narcotic abuse”. What did she mean?

Narcotic abuse is normally when a person is harming themselves or other people because of their drug use. Your Dad may have been prescribed these drugs or taken them illegally, but clearly there is something that is upsetting your mom in his use of them.

Your father may have been using some kind of prescription opioids and become reliant on them. If he has ongoing problems that are a result of using these drugs, rather than them solving a problem (a lot of opioids are prescribed for pain) then it can cause stress at home.
