My son is going through Heroin withdrawl right now as I type this. He is almost 24 hours since last use. He was using for approximately 6 months. It's only been the last week that it has been a daily thing, otherwise it was every couple of days.

Any suggestions on making this easier for him? A friend of his gave him suboxone that he plans on taking when it gets unbearable.

Someone suggested I just take him to detox to go through the withdrawls there. Any thoughts on that?

This is just horrible watching as a parent. I think I have lost 10lbs in 3 days. This is still new news to me as I just found out 4 days ago that he was even using.

Thanks so much for any advice.
