Is Methadone An Excuse To Get High?
I apologize for my cynicism but I have truly been through hell with this man. I am at my wits end but am hoping and praying still so there is at least a flicker of light left. My bf is an alcoholic, smokes crack,does basically anything anyone lies down before him. He overdosed and died on Fentanyl and was resuscitated. Was put in a program for the billionth time. Now is on Methadone. So my question is basically, does Methadone really HELP them or does it hurt them? Because I have heard so many bad things about it and how addictive it is. But if it works for him and he can function better than he was and he stays off of the alcohol and other drugs then it will be amazing. But I have heard so many people doing drugs and alcohol while doing methadone too and that completely defeats the purpose. Thank you for your time, and again, sorry if I sound offensive. I am not trying to but this man drives me up tbe wall sometimes lol. Sometimes I think the only solution may be to chain him in the basement with no phone or any type of computer or communication device and leave him there until he doesn't crave it anymore.But he would find a way to message people. He would catch the house pn fire and send smoke signals to those connections or SOMETHING lol.
