|A little about me:||I have been a stay at home mom to my 3 children since their births. They are now 22, 20 and 15. My 22 has been addicted to heroin for the past 5 years. He has gone to therapy and was tested regularly at home by me. Haha, what a joke that was. I guess he took something to cover up in his urine tests. At first he was shooting, now he snorts. The intial time I found out he was using he had drained his bank accounts. He seemed happy and stable for the next year or two. However, I saw needle marks in his arms last spring and confronted him only to be broken hearted again. He went through counceling again and yesterday I got a notice from the bank. All his accounts are overdrawn again. I confronted him and he admitted to using oxycodone. I am devasted again. My husband will have nothing more to do with helping him. I just can't let him go down that road alone. He called a doctor that does the suboxone treatment and I was happy until I just read a post how you can get high on it. I am at wits end and need counceling myself but I don't know where to turn. I am so happy to have found this site to talk to people going through the same thing. Please help me to understand.|
