Just letting you know; I have been where your son is now. I used meth intravenously for 25 years, I am 53 now. I have been clean for 5 1/2 years now. I can understand why your son's drug of choice is meth; being bi-polar myself.

I want you to know there is hope for him; if HE wants it. I am starting a group where I live called Dual Diagnosis.
I am very excited about beginning a group here; it can help my small community a lot. The thing is, and this is very important, people HAVE to want this step for THEMSELVES before they take that step. Just support him, show your love, above all do not become his enabler. Learn what Manic - Depressive (bi-polar) is about and all that comes under its huge umbrella.

Hope this helps you; I am here if you need anything.
