Default Please help! My fiance's having "dope dreams"

I got a letter from him today and he told me that he has been wanting to tell me something but didn't want to seem weak..... He's been having dope dreams.... dreams so real that he can feel it and taste it. He says that he lays in bed at night and he starts to dream about shooting dope and he can feel it and taste it and he will break out into a sweat.... Please, tell me, are there any articles I can read? Any websites that can help us through this? He has 10 more months to serve and I want to get him all the help that I can while he's in to make him stronger when he gets out.

RELAX....
Dope dreams are a normal part of the process of detoxing. It will be ok. Alcoholics have drinking dreams. I had one at 2 yrs sober!!!! I am 5 yrs sober now and had one about 6 months ago, but they dont happen often. usually when I am stressed. I had them alot in my first yr of sobriety, and alot of people do. If he can go to meetings while he is incarcerated, that would be good. many prisons let AA members in to chair meetings, not all of them do, but hopefully where youre guy is, he has access to meetings.
It will be ok. If he really wants to be sober, nothing will stop him. If he doesnt, nothing will stop him from that either. It is always up to the person with the addiction. You might want to look into Nar anon or Al anon. They are support groups for the loved ones of alcoholics or Addicts. check it out!
good luck.

it's very normal to have using dreams...and because he told you is very cool, it takes the power away, and he is demonstrating the saying you hear around the rooms of AA/NA,"You are only as sick as your secrets." he has nothing to be ashamed of.
