Sorry to hear about your friend, but asking for help for youself–definitely asking the right question!! Al-anon is especially for friends and families of alcoholics/addicts. I went for a few years and was really helpful. al-anon is worldwide and there should be a few in your area. Hope it helps you.

    OK first of all Im 37 years old and have been to every rehab from Hazelton to stateETCpointed rehabs. N/A and A/A which honestly is the most successful and biggest and free! is all it took for me. I did drugs for 22 years.( ALL OF THEM INCLUDING SHOOTING CRACK which is very easy) Honestly intill he is ready to quit or you can get some kind of family or professional interventionist (which still didnt stop me) he is not going to quit. I have been sober for 5 years and it took alot of pain and emotioal damage for me to stop. Most people die. I own a small halfway house and I detox people off Methadone. I do this for my recovery and in my situation will always be associated with addicts in some way as part of my obligation to help a addict in need of help. Here is my email [email protected] .I will answer any questions you have and can point you to the nearest N/A group around your area. ( which is free ALWAYS!) best wishes David.
