Addiction to syringesAddictions Forum
Hi, I've worked in the addictions field for over 15 years. It sounds like she has a fixation on syringes to self sooth. It sounds like her anxiety level makes her feel that if she injects she will get the release she would normally feel injecting heroin. I would work on her anxiety and possibly include a script to associate the syringe with a yuk feeling maybe when she attempts to try it it will give her feelings of nausea etc. Just a thought. She made need therapy to desensitize her from the syringe fixation.
