Have been married for close to 30 yrs, kept myself busy with children and career and trusted my husband over and over again, (but did so blindly)only to find out in 2005 that he had been addicted to smoking heroine for about 20 yrs. I learned as child to shut down phsically and emotionally during periods of stress and have been in a continuing cycle of denial for many years. During the last two years it has taken its toll on my general health, leaving me unable to drive or work in my nursing profession. Husband has been on methadone tx. for last two years with clean UAs going many miles to methadone clinic now on a monthly basis. I caught him dipping into future doses off and on and now have taken control of administering his medication for him. I have so many questions... is methadone a good tx. in your opinion? He seems to have the ability to show little or no emotion. He has always been a workaholic. He seems to enjoy the ritual of getting his methadone and why would he be dipping into doses if this drug does not make you feel high? He currently is on 130mg qd--that dose has not gone down after two years. There doesnt seem to be any support groups in this area and because i cant drive, any advice or info would be apppreciated. Thanks for listening cjb

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
