My son is heavily using pot, alcohol, and snorting oxy, occasionally using coke. We kicked him out of our home 11/2 weeks ago and told him we would consider letting him back if he went to treatment. At that time I only knew about the pot and alcohol. I learned yesterday about the oxy and coke. The symptoms of use/withdrawal fit to a tee for the last 3 months of hell that my family has been through. We have a treatment center all lined up, but all the professionals tell me I can't go to him, I have to watch him destroy himself and wait for him to come to me. They also tell me that I can't admit him somewhere for detox as it is not "medically neccesary" Here is my problem. It is breaking my heart, spirit, soul, etc to watch this. I am concerned with the amount and mixture of what he is doing that he will die before he comes back to us, and HOW THE HELL DO I HELP AN 18YR OLD 6'4 220LBS BOY DETOX when my hubby is working nights, I'm workig days, and I have 2 teenage daughters that absolutely don't need to see their brother like that as they have seen more than enough. Also I feel like I am grieving..you know helpless, sad angry, hysterically laughing, endless sobbing......What do I do now?????? How do I save my beautiful boy?????
