Heroin addiction

by Inez
(NJ)

I am unsure if my son has relapsed, but, I found some wax bags in his room along with a crack pipe and many tissues which appear to have dabbed the injection site. He has been sober for a year how can I tell for sure he is using. What are the best sequences for usage if applicable?

Waxed bags are a bad sign.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Inez,

Heroin is often delivered in waxed bags so that the heroin doesn't stick to the bag. Also, heroin can be smoked or injected and it's just as addictive and dangerous regardless of how it is taken.

You need to ask your son if he has relapsed and if he says that he has not then you must immediately take him to a doctor for a hair follicle drug test which will show any opiate usage in the prior three months.

Finding drug paraphernalia in his room when he is a recovering heroin addict is a VERY bad sign an likely means that he has relapsed. But if you get him to admit it and get back into recovery, you can hopefully nip this in the bud.

Please start attending Al-anon meetings and working the 12 steps that way you can learn as much as possible about the best way to help your son to stay sober.

Good luck!
