My son is 31 years old and has been addicted to pain pills for the last 10 years with 3 years straight in between. In the last year, he has started using after the break up with his girlfriend and has continued on the wrong path. He has stolen my apple computer, diamond ring and camera two times and I have had to pay over 600.00 to get them out of a pawn shop. He has also charged on our credit cards to over 30,000. We are now close to retirement and he is taking us down with him. Every time he completes detox he is so ashamed of what he has done to us that he becomes depressed. I help to support him because he has no money when he gets out of treatment and it costs to stay at a halfway house. He feels like a failure and can not stop using. I can't stop enabling because I am scared he will commit suicide. I worry constantly.
