I am so distraught--my son (40) has started drinking again...after 8-9 years...but during that time he did use drugs. He has been clean since 2006. I just don't know what to do?

Find a al-anon meeting. Whether he has been clean or not in the past is irrelevant. If you are distraught you deserve the love and fellowship you will find at al anon. My wife is in the fellowship and it is the best thing that ever happend to either of us! GO :D

I think it is important to realize... for and him, sobriety is abstinence from alcohol AND drugs. If he stopped using alcohol, bt substituted it with other drugs, he still has never given his body or brain chance to recover from chemical dependency.. just food for thought.
