I've been in touch with him, and this is the latest in his quest for doing the right thing. I have asked for his permission to post this here, since so many have been inquiring about him in the threads, as well as via PM's. And he said Ok. The words are his, not mine, nor are they paraphrased. "I'm doing okay. I was finally able to find a doctor that would see me last Thursday and I've been on suboxone for 6 days. The cravings have stopped completely." "This doctor's just temporary. I just saw her to get put on suboxone because every other fucking shrink wasn't taking new patients until late next month. I must've called 15-20 shrinks and it was always the same response. I have enough suboxone to last me til then. I'm going to a shrink's office tomorrow morning before work to sign a medical records release form, so my family doctor can fax them my medical records. I have to do that before I can make an appt. with this shrink. This shrink's an addiction specialist that also works in one of the local rehabs. He's supposed to be really good. I'll continue the suboxone and also have weekly group therapy." i then posted this: Spoiler And he replied with: "Goddammit and WTF???????????????????????" He then proceeded to yell at me, and called me names and cursed me out in Italian for the next hour or two. _______________________ It's good to see that he's taken the initiative to clean himself up, and hopefully find out why he keeps doing the same destructive shit over and over again. Can't wait till he's allowed to come back.
