My son needs help!?!
My son needs help. We as a family need help. As a mother I do not think that I can handle watching my son die. I want to see my grandchildren grow.
My son has struggled with a opiate addiction for many years. He has been to rehab short term a couple of times he has been to Suboxone clinics but distance has caused problems with that.
He is a good father to his almost two year old son. I cannot enable him. He has depression issues, anxiety, bipolar and probably misdiagnosis for other things. He does not work. He cares for his son while his wife works. He cannot be left with this child. My son could end up dead in front of his child. He has not showed any signs of mental status change but admits he is using heroin.
As a family and friends we no longer can do anything. He has no place to live, no money and no family. He is at another addicts home at this time. He has always been a follower and this puts the others in control. His biological father has similar addiction issues and his half sisters also do. These are the family members that he was not raised with.
Insurance coverage is a big deal with any medicaid affiliated program it is very hard to find any place that will take him or if they do it is not for long enough. He needs life skills, he needs confidence, he needs a job and he needs to be disconnected from all his family and associates so he can find himself and this does not happen overnight.
He is a otherwise healthy/handsome/intelligent 30 year old man with a supporting family and extended family. I know these are my opinions but the whole family is on the same page with this. I love your shows and it is very apparent that you know the need for mental health care support.
Thank you for your time.
