My 21 yr old son admitted last night that he is on heroin.Wwe saw “track” marks on his arm. he says that he wants help but, will not go into inpt rehab & will not talk to a “crazy” dr. (psycharist).
I am a nurse & have some resources available.we have good health insurance. i am not sure what the next step is or should be. My son has a 1 yr old daughter, he is not working & looks like a concentration camp refugee.
I am scared for him.
As far as i know, there has been no treatment attempts made. i personally want to just go “take” him out of his apt & drag him kicking & screaming to a rehab center. (although, i beleive the law says i can’t do this) he is my son & his family loves & cares about him very much.
He has had 2 open heart surgeries 4 yrs ago. I have tried to research this drug on the internet & researching treatment centers as well. i can find alot of information about the drug however, its hard to find out much/any information about any treatment centers.
Please help me (my son) with any information of what the 1st step should be? do i take him to a family dr & go from there or what?
ANY INFORMATION YOU CAN PROVIDE TO OUR FAMILY WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!
I do not want to have to bury my youngest son because of an overdose. Omgosh, what would i tell his 1yr old daughter? this is breaking my heart, i have not slept or eaten since he has told me this. i am thinking that him telling me this is the 1 STEP in asking for help?
