Cindy, Evan my 19 year old son will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow. He checked in following a near fatal Heroin overdose. I am very concerned about his continued use and do not think it is a good idea for him to return home so soon. Any suggestions?
Olivia, Evan should not return home so quickly as it is the same environment where he used Heroin. The detox process is the first stage of treatment, which is occurring at the hospital. Rather than return home Evan should check into a residential treatment center to address the issues that cause and trigger his Heroin use.
