Asalam Alaikum. Our 30 year old son is dependent on methadone after taking opiates for around 2 years. We discovered this by chance recently. This is a very sad depressing situation for both myself and my husband. It was only discovered recently when he was hospitalised. He is irrational, has no patience and I feel we are slowly losing him. We don't know who to turn to or what to do as we are too embarrassed to tell our families obviously because of the shame yet we don't know how to deal with the issue. He used to pray 5 times a day, fast, follow the Quran and Sunnah and did a dawah table. His marriage ended in divorce 2 years ago, mostly his fault we believe, and he blames this as to the reason why he takes drugs now. I believe he also takes other non-prescribed drugs too. Tell me please what can I do. I make dua for him but I am pretty desperate as it hurts for us to see him descend like this. Thank you.
