I will try to make this short and sweet. LOL. I am permantely disabled due to chronic pain. My oldest son started stealing my pain meds about 2 years ago, then starting buying it off the street,, later tried herion. Several months ago I discovered this and told him to pack his bags. He admitted he was an addict and asked for help. I couldn't afford in-patient and he didn't have insurance so I was able to pay for a Dr. who did out patient therapy. He went to 3 appointments where he was given Suboxone. My son didn't like the way it made him feel. Now he wants to go to go to the Methadone clinic. I don't understand why he would want to go that route instead. He doesn't have a job, he's 25 years old, his father left us in April and is an alcoholic ( who is becoming his good 'ol buddy now). I attend al anon and believe that I am not enabling him anymore, but I am frustrated by his lack of motivation to get better. Am I wrong in seeing that going to the Methadone clinic is a step backwards instead of forwards. He has social anxiety and refuses to go to a 12 step program. I welcome any suggestions. Thanks in advance...
