fiancee in rehab
Posted by lost33 on 6 August 2015.
This is my first post and I'm not sure where to start. My fiancee has been admitted into rehab on a 28 day programme a few days ago and I'm lost and scared of the future. We have 2 young children and he has been addicted to prescription pills for a few years which he buys from research chemical companies online. This has evolved and I no longer recognise him most of the time. He hasn't contributed to family life for a while although he held down a job and paid a lot of the bills he was recently made redundant and the situation deteriorated. I gave him an ultimatum go to rehab or let me raise our family alone. The situation got dangerous pills left laying about where a 2 and 4 year old could get them. I've not heard anything from him akthough I know he has his phone there. My life has been overtaken by this addiction and my children's childhood is suffering as they are growing up without a father notwithstanding him being present in the house he is just not there. I always believed if I could get him to rehab everything would work out but since he has been gone I seem to be reading so many stories where the addict never recovers and relapses are a permanent and devestating feature of so many partners lives. I love him but I'm scared about my childrens future and I am scared he will never be the man I built hopes abd dreams with. I don't know how to live a life that I have no control over. Any advice would be great.
