Hi.

A friend of mine made it a week into heroin withdrawal cold turkey. He seems very motivated to stay clean. He has been looking for a rehab program and is on the waiting list at several of them. He will probably choose a county program.

Unfortunately, his drive to use got the better of him. At first, pot seemed to be enough of an intoxication to "fill in the holes" temporarily. Now, he is lacing his pot with heroin. His girlfriend has been tolerant of this behavior because she believes this will keep him from shooting up. We don't know how long it will be before he begins the rehab program. Does anyone have any suggestions on what he can do in the interim?

Thanks.

Heroin can certainly be a demon. It didn't take but a few weeks for him to get to this point. He was probably hooked after his very first hit.
