Hello, I'm new to this forum. I have been abusing opiates for the last 2 years. I am not in trouble with the board and I don't work in an acute care setting but I'm terrified to tell anyone or seek help because I am afraid of being reported. I'm so tired, hopeless, embarrassed and ashamed. I don't want the life I'm living anymore and I just want to get help but I'm terrified of the consequences. Has anyone ever had any repercussions for seeking treatment voluntarily? Thank you. I'm in California.
