My boyfriend is suffering from an addiction to painkillers and most probably alcohol as well. He finally has admitted to his dependencies and is reaching out to me for support. The only dilemma that we are facing is that he is aboard a cruise ship working as a crew member. He is sailing through Hawaii for the next few months working while tryng to kick his addiction. (He feels that getting on this ship and working will help him refocus and stay away from the thigs he had become dependant on.) I am worried that he is going to have trouble coping with withdrawals seeing that he won't have anyone that cares for him around him to help suppport him. I will only be able to support him via telephone. I am on this site to learn more about addiction and how i can be there for my boyf in any way possible. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
