I just found out my daughter and son-in-law are smoking pot with my 18year old grandson. What should I do?

Very bad idea! Methadone is a synthetic opiate, developed in Germany in the late 1930’s, and acts on the same brain receptors as morphine.

The drug is used to mitigate the nasty opiate withdrawal symptoms. A small dose of methadone can help the patient get through. So your cousin is going to buy morphine off the street and take that instead of his prescribed medication.

First, it’s illegal. Second, it’s medically a foolish, if not insane thing to do. If your cousin is seriously considering this, he has obviously given up on his treatment and probably isn’t interested in really working at his recovery. He should do a 12 Step program, which is designed to get the patient off methadone or any other maintenance drug.

I do not see an upside to this scenario. Maybe you can encourage your cousin to rethink this idea and get back on track with a proven treatment and recovery program.
