A person posted this on another board and its worth noting it might help a Parent. Drug addiction not only kills the addict, it significantly hurts the addict’s family. I am not sure how many know of the treatment...Vivitrol. It is a medication that BLOCKS opiate receptors. It ALSO STOPS THE CRAVING. It is a once a month injection taken in a certified doctor’s office. It WORKS!!! NO REHAB CLINIC OR PROGRAM WILL TELL ADDICTS OR FAMILIES ABOUT THIS TREATMENT! It is working for my son.....sober for 12 months.
