My boyfriend of 4 years recently started using heroin. He has been clean and sober for 11 years and was very active in AA and Al-anon. He was living with me until I found out he started using and I asked him to leave unless he stopped and got clean.
He disappeared for about a month which was an emotional roller coaster for me until I finally found him but he was into very heavy use then. He is still using and continues to tell me he wants to get clean and he knows he needs to. I have told him I am about done with us and it doesn’t seen to even phase him.
I love him and I worry about him and I don’t want to have to end this relationship but I am not seeing any other option. He is not the same person I fell in love with and it is awful to watch this self destruction.
I have offered to help him detox and be there for him and he tells me he is trying to wean himself off this stuff but then he continues to spend his time with his new heroin using friends he has recently met.
Since meeting these people a month ago, he has begun to use Xanax too. I have never used drugs in my life or been around this so it is all overwhelming and scary. Any advice or options would be greatly appreciated.
