backstory: he suffers from depression, hurt his back 15 years ago, got hooked on pain killers, went to treatment, was fine for 13 years. about 2 years ago, he hurt his back again, went thru depression, and started taking pain killers again. well i just saw him over the weekend and hes an absolute mess. my Mom has pretty much given up, she spends her time in a summer home right now, while hes in florida. she's content with him living a surreal life, being buzzed 24/7. The truth is i havent seen my "father" in 2 years and it pains me seeing him numb from everything. I finally went up to him and told him he has a serious drug addiction. he broke down, pretty much looking helpless. i have a week off before my job begins and ive decided to drive down home from college and im gonna get this shit out of him. He agreed for me to come home....and i plan on sticking me and him in my room, and im gonna help him through this. my mother has no idea of whats going to happen. im sad. im angry. i cant put him in a treatment center, he's going to lose his job if that happens. im gonna hope i can get him clean, and get him to change his lifestyle....if he continues to afterwards, i think my only option is a treatment center. Any advice would help on this situation. things to expect, ways to help him withdrawal, any stories....thanks.
