I'm having a really difficult time dealing with my fiancee, and father of 2 children, and his addiction to prescription pain pills and Xanax. I know he's in pain, he has a rod and 9 screws in his arm and also his leg. But it's gotten completely out of control. Back in January a friend of his who has the same pills and the same doctor (who if you ask me is a quack, my fiancee doesn't want me going there and I told him I will not believe him until I go with him and hear for myself him telling the doctor he has a problem). That's when he got on the Xanax, and that's made it so much worse than it already was. It is literally, making me go crazy. What makes it worse is my family lives in 2 states away, his family knows about his problem and we are all at our whit's end. We just don't know what to do. He falls asleep in the weirdest places, like today I found him on the toilet slumped over with his cheek on the sink. That's not normal! I even have him on video giving our 4 year old son an invisible cup of juice. And I know it's these pills because every time towards the end of the month he starts acting sober again and as soon as he goes back to his doctor he's back to looking all loopy. I am so sick of arguing with someone who doesn't know left from right, I'm more importantly sick of arguing in front of our children. I called his mother tonight to ask if the kids and I could go up there for a few nights, we all live on 40 acres of land. I can't stand looking at him because I can TELL HE'S high on these pills! He has a shed outside he keeps locked and nobody can get into, he's running outside first thing in the morning to take a pill, does them behind my back, lies to everyone, he's even resorted to stealing stuff! It's sickening and I hate saying that, I have been through hell these last 6 years and I've seriously thought something would change and I have no idea what to do. He even drives with our son in the vehicle when he's falling asleep! He'll start dozing off and then I'll wake him up and he'll automatically say "I'm not sleeping". I always say I'm going to get him on camera acting like he does and then show him when he's sober, but I'm just to the point of giving up on him. He had 30 days to stay off of them and obviously it didn't do the job.

Hello everyone. I'm new to this group. I'm just overwhelmed right now. My son, 23, is a drug addict. He's done spice and lots of pot and I suspect he's had bouts of heroine and meth use. What seems to be his main addiction though is dph(benedryl). He started using it in his early teens. I had no idea.When he was 21, I got frustrated and yelled at him after he failed to pay for his car payments...
