Hi, I have tried to put my story on here without success. It might be too long. Anyway short version is I have an 18 year old son who clearly has a drug problem. It is mostly pot right now but he has tried a lot of other stuff including OTC meds. Last October he overdosed twice, once on tendril and once on mucinex. He spent his 18th birthday in the ER. When he was 15 we sent him to a wilderness program and then a therapeutic boarding school for a year. He looked and seemed great after that. He was sober and doing well. Had a wonderful girlfriend for a year. He seems to have thrown all that away and now there is a real question of him graduating high school this year. Drugs are back in big way. We rare worried but also at a different place ourselves. We know the best thing we can do is not enable him. I am very very glad to have found this forum. Oh and mixnroll is a play on my real life name and not intended as any kind of drug reference!!!

Just reread my post....That was supposed to be benedryl not tendril. We found out too much benedryl makes you psychotic, really scary stuff. I think that was scary to him too.
