Hi, all. I am Lora from Toronto. It is for my son I writing here. It is for my son I writing here. My son was an addict and he was under alcohol and drugs for so many years. My son for whom I am living was out of my control. He met with an accident and last year and he is still under medicines for that. I was asked to take proper care of my son and give him support in whatever he does. It was last month that he showed some signs of recovery. But I found a strange two weeks before that my son is taking too much pain killers. It is like he is addicted to that. doctor has asked to take painkillers if he has any joint pains but my son found pleasure in having that and now he is like totally addicted to that. After that accident, I thought he won't go back to his older days. But this is bothering me a lot. I have fixed an appointment at Helix healthcare ( http://https://helixhealthcaregroup.com/ ) for an addiction treatment. I want my son to be free from this situation. I can't and I don't want to see his life going like this. I am living for him and he is not understanding that. I need a suggestion regarding medicines that could be good for joint pains other than painkillers. I can't take him to doctor for that as I don't want to put on shame. Is my decision a good one? Will this addiction treatment help my son in getting rid of this addiction?
