drug-addicted loved one
Hi cyber doc

i hope you can help. my boyfriend is an addict and i have been supportive - yet also firm, insisting he gets help - throughout the few weeks that he has been relapsing again. I don't know what else to do! Is it possible to force him to get help? And if so, how? I am also alone in this situation because his family lives overseas.

Thank you
j

Dear Jade
No you can't really force him.
However, you must get professional help to assist you to manage this: See http://www.stopaddiction.co.za/stopaddiction/
