I'm really sorry you find yourself in that situation.

I know you'll find a lot of support here - check out our Family and Friends forum too - you'll find a lot of people down there who've been through what you're going through as well

Sorry to hear this. Heroin is a nasty drug. My older cousins have been caught up in heroin for the longest time. It is a bitch to shake.

As Dee said, check the F&F forum. The only other suggestions I have is to look for a rehab or try Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program.

I went through this with a family member. It was crack. Lies and excuses, lies and excuses. Total selfishness. I empathize with you and hope he makes better choices.

Making sure someone does not kill themself is not a responsibility someone should take on alone. If you fear for his safety please call 911, or report it to the police.

Good luck.
