How can I get my son help with no health insurance?
My 33 yr old son goes to a methadone clinic and taking Xanax's with it from off the street. I'm so scared of walking in his bedroom one day and he won't be breathing.
It seems like his situation is getting worse by the day. He works 10 hr shifts, 4 days a week. I don't know how he preforms his job.
I know he has to of taken a great amount of Xanax's this weekend because he's been sleeping for two days, only waking about every 5 to 6 hrs and going to restroom. He has eaten very little because he can't stay awake long enough to eat. My son has lost approximately 10 to 15 lbs. within the last 3 weeks.
I feel in my heart he's crying for help but doesn't have the will power to detox. I have talked to him so many times and told him I would find him some help out there somewhere if he would just go ahead an admit himself. He will agree with me then will turn right around and get so messed up he doesn't know he's in the world.
My son has full support from his whole family and we're at the point don't know what else to do. I am a mother crying for help for my son and I've been told that the Tennessee law states that an adult cannot be admitted by family unless there's a suicide note or proof that he's suicidal. I know he's suicidal because I see it every day.
I'd appreciate any advise you can give me that will point my son and I in the right direction.
