My boyfriend's ex is a drug seeker/substance abuser/narcotic pill popper - page 2
My boyfriend has admitted to me a few days ago that his ex girlfriend (whom he has a 3yr old child with) called him the other day asking him for a bottle of vicodin. She stated she has absolutely no... Read More

You didn't SEE her take/abuse narcotics, so really it's none of ur business. I find it really interesting that she called ur boyfriend askin for said drugs. Why/how would he have access to them. Since your a nurse and with him, what should we now assume about YOU?

That's why I mentioned hiring a PI.
Very often, folks will hire a PI because they are dead sure that the ex is doing drugs around the kids (or something like that).
These folks get all excited because they can't wait for the PI to "get the goods" on that Crazy Ex...
Only to find out the only evidence the PI has is video footage of the Crazy Ex lovingly buckling Jr. into his car-seat, carefully driving him to the park and, basically, just being a good parent all day.

Sep 16, '12 by PRNketamine7, BSN, RNWhat about the child? If he really believes she is using, especially when the daughter is around, he should call the child protective service hotline.
Sep 16, '12 by Jory, ADN, BSN, MSNI'll tell you who you need to call and it's not the Board of Nursing...you need to call Social Services because if she is a hard-core addict, they will make her take a drug test and as long as your boyfriend is clean, the baby will go STRAIGHT to him.
This isn't a legal issue, it's a child protection issue.
Tell him not to fall for the BS. When you are on the right side of things, you shouldn't have anything to fear.
Sep 16, '12 by BrnEyedGirl, BSN, MSN, RN, APRNQuote from itsmejuliAgreee,..run fast! I too am curious why she would ask? Perhaps because he had provided in the past? Just something for the OP to think about!My first thought is why is she asking him for a bottle of vicodin?
If I was in your shoes I'd be seeking the drama free zone.
Sep 16, '12 by Jory, ADN, BSN, MSNQuote from RN-CardiacI thought this too and if I was the OP, her boyfriend may be a user as well.Agreee,..run fast! I too am curious why she would ask? Perhaps because he had provided in the past? Just something for the OP to think about!
Funny, how he was the person she called and he was actually worried that he may not get custody...anyone who has common sense and is clean, should know better than that.
