David G.
son


Please pray for my son who is addicted to oxycontin.

My son has been addicted to oxycontin quite a while. He just went through a couple of weeks of detox and is right back on them. He is in a terrible "nervous breakdown" right now. He is extremely depressed and has tried to commit suicide twice within the last week. No antiepressant works for him. He walks around the house like a walking zombie talking suicide all of the time. He has not been working and has no money. This is taxing my husband's and my health. Please pray for him and our family, as the whole family is going through this with him.

We're sorry your son feels so badly right now. It sounds as if he would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources he could try. We hope he will contact one of them as soon as possible. He deserves to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If he is in the U.S., he can call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When he calls this free number, he will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in his region. The sooner he makes this call, the better. (helplines worldwide)

2. If he can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called The Samaritans. By sending an e-mail to jo@samaritans.org he will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website he may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

He is in our prayers.
