Hey folks, First off, thanks to everyone in advance that actually reads this diatribe. It is greatly appreciated. Secondly, a little background. I am 23, and he is 24. I've known this friend of mine since we were around six years old...long time. We went through High School together as best buds, then graduated and continued the typical post HS years (two) as the same. We started gradually growing apart as a lot of people do, but still remained very close and still do to this day. A couple years back, I got a phone call from him to just shoot the shit, and I ended up taking him out for dinner. Conversation led to one thing and another until he finally fessed up that he was in the process of kicking Meth. Now, at this point I am shocked. Mostly because he was never the type to do any sort of illicit drugs when we were in High School sans weed and alcohol...the typical HS designer drugs. And then secondly because I, quite honestly, had no idea about Meth. Heard of it, uncle did it (hung himself while strung out on it and alcohol), but really had no idea about its effects and pitfalls. At this point, I just reassure him that I am there for him and anything that he possibly needs to just give me a call. Typical friend stuff, ya know? Fast forward about a year. All seems well, says he is clean. He is acting clean. To my knowledge at that point, he kicked it. He put a lot of the weight back on that he had lost. He actually has a little bit of money whereas before he had absolutely none. Fast forward again to last weekend. I get a call from his cousin telling me that Brandon is missing. Shocked again, naturally. Talked to her for a while to figure out what to do next. Immediately I think back to our conversation where he told me about his drug use. At some point you just get a feeling in your gut about what is happening, even though you don't have any concrete evidence to support it...you just know. Long story short(er), he is back doing Meth again. The sad part is, his cousin's family works at Hazeltine (for those of you that do not know, Hazeltine is a world reknowned clinic for dependancy and other things) and they arranged for a 21 day stint...free of charge. He refused it saying, "I don't have a problem." His family is currently awaiting his blood results...for what, I am not entirely sure. Maybe somebody can help there - Can you figure out what he's been using and for how long simply from those types of tests? Basically, I just do not know what to do. I love him like the brother I never had, and want to do something to help, but I honestly have no idea what to do next. Thanks again for reading. Cliff notes: Best friend is doing meth - no idea what to do - please help.
