If he is threatening suicide... I'd either be taking him to the ER or calling the police. That is NOT something to mess around with... He needs professional help and drug counseling. HE has to choose to stop doing the drugs because no one else can take that step for him, but you CAN let him know that you aren't just going to sit idly by while he ends his life.

How old is your son? What type of drugs is he using? Has he ever been enrolled in a drug program to get clean? Is he getting counseling? What problems is he having that he is using drugs to escape from, and thinking of suicide as a solution for? What, if anything, have you tried so far to help him find healthier ways to cope?
