... overdosed 2x's and we split for 2 1/2 yrs because of this. Our kids are happy with us together and they've been through too much already , we all have. i'm not sure what to do to help him, or if i should even keep on trying! He gets the pills free whenever he wants and thats something that i've tried to put a stop to but it's out of my control. I understand addiction and how out of control it feels. something terrible usually happens to make you realize you have a problem.It's not the problem that i can't understand it's how to deal with it, and help my family. is there anyone with a similar problem that has found anything to help?
At this point you need to think of yourself and get out before you have no life at all. I went 23 years and my wife and kids left me a couple times. Even my mothers death didn't shake me. I od more then a few times. Addiction is a very selfesh thing tio go through. You need to get away from him and let him decide how he wants to live. Believe it or not but he isn't ready to get into recovery and as you already know, you are powerless against addiction.
Has he tried suboxone???
I finally got on methadone and have been in recovey for almost 8 years. I'm back to work and my depression is gone. I would look into suboxone first before methadone. Try suboxone.com and read up on it... Good luck... Dave
