My son has nearly died 5 times, I have had to give him mouth to mouth before, currently he is in prison but due to be released in 6 weeks, he nearly died in there on prescription drugs where he over dosed. He has been taking drugs since he was 14 , but not just one type he will take anything to give him that buzz that he will never have again. I went to the prison yesterday and they have had to take him off methodone because of other drugs he seems to get his hands on, they said he is like a time bomb waiting to go off. Please anyone what can I do , I don't want to be burying my son I can't stop thinking about it thanks Karen x

If he doesn't want help there's not much you can do.
You do need to make sure you aren't enabling him though. Don't give him money to buy drugs, if he is going to live with you make sure he pays rent and if you find him using you need to get tough and make him move out.
I understand you don't want to bury him but you can't help someone that doesn't want help.
