... wing off is that possible
It is possible to wean off the morphine though it takes much determination and from that high a dose it isn't going to be easy. Be careful falling for the addicts ways of getting more drug. We have a tendency to say anything just to get more. If he is serious about getting off the morphine then I recommend some type of rehab. There are doctors that specialize in this type problem and I'm sure there are some in your area. Try to google "addiction doctors" and see if you don't find some.
Another avenue to pursue is the use of a medication such as Suboxone which is prescribed for opiate detox. You can go to Suboxone.com to find a doctor that is certified in using this medicine. They have a doctor locator on the site.
Your son needs help not hand outs. Investigate treatment for him rather than fueling his addiction.
