I'm sorry you're going thru this. I have never been addicted to anything other than soda and cigarettes, so I have no real insight.
I have been thru my fair share of physical pain tho and could get a boat load of narcotics from any doctor I see because of my medical conditions, but I choose not to out of fear of addiction.
I do know that there are different levels of addiction and different reasons for addiction. If your DH was prescribed pain pills for a true pain and he became addicted trying to actually kill the pain, then that's a whole nother ballgame. It's going to be a hard road for him, unlike ppl that use to get high your husband actually needs medicine to dull pain so he function like a normal human.
I would call his doctor or make an appt and see the doctor yourself. There may be a alternate medicine, injections, accupuncture, therapy, etc... that can be used in place of the lortab or other narcotics to dull the pain. The doctor may be able to prescribe a proxy lortab. A fake pill that looks like a lortab but has no medicinal use. If he's truly addicted because of the pain it will be much easier to overcome if the pain is taken care of in other ways. Get a lock and key and keep his meds under your thumb at all times. Give them as directed. Look into OTC relief...heat patches, naproxin, vitamins, etc... and intergrate them into the mix. As much pain as I'm in most days naproxin, motrin, and 2 vitamin B12 pills help tremendously.
Good luck.
