Hello everyone, My brother in law has been dealing with heroin addiction for over ten years now. He has been sober for many but has recently relapsed. He has two beautiful children with (we just found out) a third on the way. He is willing to go into an inpatient rehab facility for treatment but faces a major obstacle. He was recently fired from his job for failing a random drug test and due to the way he was fired, was denied unemployment. He is currently looking for a job and has decided he cannot do impatient because his wife cannot support the family on her income alone. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? This situation seems to be more frustrating that when he couldn't admit he had a problem and would not go into rehab. He had admitted the problem, knows he is in a downward spiral, willing to do a program, but can't seem to make it work. Is there anyway around this? A program that can help? Is outpatient the solution? If so, is it as effective? This is my husbands brother and I want to help but I just don't have that much knowledge of the decease of addiction. If any of you can share some insight it would be so greatly appreciated.
