My 18 year old brother is also a heroin addict. He was sober for 2 months when he was living with my cousin who has been sober for 2 years. He came home for a court date(stole my neighbors tv) and went on a drug binge. He overdosed and had to be revived twice. He was supposed to go back up to Maine and resume going to meetings and hopefully become sober again. He took off. Now he is on the streets somewhere getting high. My family is going through a difficult time right now, and I am in an outpatient program for depression. I feel for anyone going through the same thing. I am hoping to talk to people who have had the same experience and how they have dealt with it.
