In brief: Serious

Your addiction is quite serious.
If you don't have the required specialists available, you need to insure that you make use of what is available. Involve your PCP; go to a 12-step program; see a psychologist; involve family and friends.

This is in the programs of narcotics anonymous or alcoholics anonymous.
