Crack Lung

I recently left a rehab facility, after about 3 years of smoking crack cocaine.  I stayed in the facility for 22 days, and once released, and still clean, i seem to have developed crack lung, i am now spitting up black green and grey mucus with blood and i had a high fever (102)
I went to the doctor and emergency room because it was getting so bad, all they have done is prescribed antibiotics.  Do i need a steroid inhaler?  My fever seems to have subsided, and the blood is less prevalent in my coughing spasms.
Thank You
