any advice will be helpful..need help getting my bf off of hydrocodone

My boyfriend and I haven't been together that long 3 months but I he recently told me that he is addicted to hydrocodone and wants to get off and he wants me to help him. I know there r gonna be withdrawls but I am just wondering what to expect and how I can help home thru all this. Any advice anyone has is greatly apprexiated. Thanks and God bless..Also do I need to taper him off or just let him stomach taking them all together. He was taking already 12 a day.

Hello taterwhite and welcome.

You are taking on a tall order and it is to be commended.

If his doctor is prescribing the meds,I would first ask him to speak with him/her.They have his medical history and it is unclear whether or not he has any other conditions not mentioned here.
He may need to go to NA(Narcotics Anonymous)or at the very least AA(Alcoholics Anonymous) as the premise is similar;realizing the powerlessness over a particular substance.
Expect mood swings and general irritability during the detox process.

Please keep us posted.

Respectfully

Phoenix
