I must make a correction to your otherwise insightful post—there is no such thing as a ‘former addict’.  An addict is an addict for life.

Not going to rehab because he won’t see his kids for awhile is TOTAL BS. It is never better to have an addict parent than to not see them for a few months. This is a very common reaction from addict parents that to a sober mind makes absolutely no sense. And he needs inpatient treatment. With a drug like oxys the physical withdrawals are so strong he’ll need to go through a detox and that should be done in a supervised medical setting. I agree with the PPs that most likely before you know it he’ll have stolen everything you have to pay for his addiction. And lots of people who are addicted to opiate pills end up switching to heroin because it is a lot cheaper. I agree that you really have no choice but to leave. You can’t love him to death.
