No.  Don't confront the dealer. You confront your wife if you're ready to set some serious boundaries on her behavior where living in your home is concerned.  Has she ever been in treatment for substance abuse?  Have you attended any Al-Anon meetings?

she has been in the program for 24 yrs and attends a.a regularly. complains of chronic pain and has even been to the e.r. her doctors know the situation with alcohol & drug abuse so they will not give her anything for pain. she got 4 hydrocodones froma friend .
i have been in alanon for 25 yrs and have a sponsor. i was advised to contact this person and tell them she has a drug problem and not to give her anything..i was just checking out anothers experience ,strenght and hope on this situation. if she is in pain ( and i have seen her sit and cry over it.) then she may need the meds. so i am in a delimia.
