give a parent some help or info
So my 23 yr heroin addicted old son has tried rehab, twelve steps, salvation army, and probably something else that I can't remember, so he said he wanted to use methadone. 'It will clear my head, help me get my life in order.' And, it actually has worked in that way - he is keeping a steady job, has paid off bills, is really aware of his situation, and appears to have no interest in using. My question is - what about getting off methadone? I'm not hung up about substituting one substance for another - he and I have talked about how the methadone has helped stop behaviors. When does he start tapering off methadone? Thanks to anyone with experience with this addiction.
