I’m so happy your parents were able to see the huge step he is making by seeking out help.  They are completely justified to still be concerned about you but I’m glad they are being supportive of him, you and your relationship with each other.

Good luck to both of you!

Hi. I haven’t been through this situation with a SO, but my younger sister has been in treatment for an opiate problem (hers is more of a heroin issue). Everyone is different, so I can’t really give you specific advice re: your boyfriend, but I want to give you credit for taking care of yourself, which is so important and so easy to let slide. That was one of the hard parts for me when I found out my sister had a problem–I focused so much on being supportive to my sister and the rest of my family that I didn’t acknowledge how shocked, sad, scared and hurt I was. I want to encourage you to keep taking care of your own needs and paying close attention to your own feelings–don’t be afraid to seek a therapist, which really helped me deal with and sort out my feelings. Having negative feelings about this doesn’t mean you don’t love your Boyfriend or Best Friend, so don’t let your own needs slide. Major hugs and support to you. I haven’t been on WB long so I don’t know that I have the hang of the site yet, but I will keep an eye out for PMs in case you have questions about treatment or anything.

I’m happy to hear that he’s getting help and that your family is being supportive.  Good for you for taking advantage of the free therapy sessions through work.  Best of luck with everything.
