We are doing as best we can. Only positive update is that our son is in a rehab center. I believe he will be able to make his first phone call to us Thursday evening. I hope he is doing good there! Thank you so much Terraniux

Ohh, my God... D:
Hook , wow, your son is clearly hooked and is stubborn. That is just so sad...He needs the Lord Jesus Christ more than ever before now, I will pray for him to accept Christ in his life fully, he needs Him now, like...right now...!
I'll pray for you and your wife and other children as well, and grandchildren!
Don't worry about playtesting the servers either, family comes first *AND* foremost!!
God bless you Captain! I'll withdraw to my prayer closet... this is just so sad...just f***ing awful and sad (pardon my French).
Opiates may be the hardest to physically detox from due to the way they bond in the pain receptors. You never get rid of it, your body just gets used to it, hence larger doses are always needed. Until he really wants to put it in his past he will go back to it. I'm not sure what people get from the experience. I have seen someone have his Methodone prescription plus a can of strong beer, then sort of grind to a halt before falling asleep. It is not a social drug. It seems to be a way to cut off from the outside world rather than have fun in it.
If he feels he is a letdown or is no use in this world, it is a a deep pit to climb from. "Why should I bother", and "What is the point" are the common stumbling-block and "because we love you" won't cut it. He needs a purpose of sorts, even a small one. A reason to be sober that outweighs the desire to cut-off. He has to want to not see the same people and visit the same places that drag him back down.
You may find some useful info online regarding users experiences on the drug, to try and understand what he may be getting from it, and why. In my experience I have seen that ex-drug users that are drug councillors tend to get better results, due to less of an "us and them" divide. Some people reject help from people they see as not being able to truly understand. Ask at the rehab centre if there are any ex-addicts you can talk to. Your son isn't the only one to need help.
If his addiction is due to circumstance rather than addictive personality, he may be able to take more control of drying out. I know an ex-army guy that got himself off heroin, by reducing his meth prescription faster than the doctors said, and supplementing with a small bottle of brandy, until finally 1 small bottle of brandy per week on its own was no big problem. Not everyone is that strong, but some sense of being in control can help, especially if there is a reward at the end.
Perhaps if he won't answer messages, write a letter and get it to him. Get other family to write letters also.
