Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board


One of my good friends got himself addicted to heroin and he was trying to quit and I was helping him but it wasn't working so we went to a methadone clinic and he did that for a two or three weeks and it seemed to be helping. Iam the only one who knows about his addiction, not even his family or friends know. He left for atlanta a day or two after he stopped the methadone treatment. He said he felt ok and was going to be fine cuz I had said I was worried about him moving to atlanta where he can get any drug he wants when he wants. He said he'd call me when he was there and as he has no phone I cannot call him. I know he was going to come home for christmas and I know his brother so I thought about maybe calling his brother to see if hes home. Iam just worried that he didnt call me cuz he started up with his problem again....
What do you guys think?
I just want to make sure he is ok...he has a daughter that means the world to him and he wants nothing more then to stop his problem. I just am worried if he started up again...cuz most people dont kick it the first time...
