My son has a long history of problems. He's 37. When he was much younger he had an addiction to alcohol which causes tremendous hardship on the entire family and problems with the law with him. He overcame that addiction and has been sober for at least 10 years now. However a few years ago he had a back injury and started taking precription narcotics. After they no longer were working the dose was increased bringin us up to about a month ago. I am 100% sure that the Dr. he was going to should hang a sign out "Crack" My son is self employed has made more money for several years than most people make over a perios of many years but yet he has nothing and is broke. His money has gone to the Dr. and all the drugs. About three weeks ago he decided that he no longer wanted to live this type of life and consulted with another Dr. and started a detox program. He was given Suboxone and also Zanax. I objected to the Zanax but my son felt it was what he needed. He is now overdosing on the Zanax and has taken a two week supply of th Suboxone in one week. Yesterday and today he is not functioning well. He's barefly speaking and barely capable of walking. Tonight my husband called a hotline. We are panic sticken. No more than two weeks ago I got the flu as well as my husband and my son and his wife. (they live with us) My son had to be hospitalized because his colong was contracting so much he ended up with a blockage. It took nearly a week of treatment in the hospital but he got through the issue without surgery. They had to put him on pain medication and that messed up his detox program slightly. My husband and I are scared. We just don't know what to do. He's frantically on the computer looking for a in house program to try and get him into. We know that our son will be up all night in and out of the house. Last night he did the same thing. The daugterinlaw is another store at a different time.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
