I happened upon this site on Google and was strengthened when I read some of the posts. My son will be 26 on Monday. On February 23rd he overdosed on heroin and was revived by Narcan. He was living with my husband and me at the time and we had NO IDEA there was a problem. In hindsight his addiction is so obvious but at the time I was so very blind. He started seeing a new girl in Oct whose father overdosed on heroin and died and whose mother is also and opioid addict. He refused treatment and went to stay with his father who lives about an hour away. After 6 days he was able to get a hold of a friend to come pick him up and bring him back to Baltimore. There have since been a few back and forth but this is where we stand now: In April we allowed my son and his girlfriend to live with us, rent free, for 2 months. There were rules in place like curfews and, of course, no stealing. After 4 days they had broken curfew and stole some money from us. It was not a lot but that's not really the point. I had to tell them they were no longer welcome and they left that day. Since that time the contact that I've had with my son has been minimal. He does not have a cell phone. I saw him this past Thursday and was devastated by his state. He is so very thin. He still acts like my son (to a point) but denies needing treatment. I went to my first Naranon meeting last week and I'm also in counseling. This situation has shattered my heart and I don't know where to turn or what to do. Please help.
