This is for my boyfriend and yes, we'll be talking treatment and yes, he'll eventually be seeing a doctor and stuff, but right now it looks like I'm going to be driving 600 or so miles to pick him up and then turning around and driving him home. I just want to know is there anything, herbal or OTC or available, that he can take during this drive to make him more comfortable and less utterly miserable? Weed and clonopin are both possible options - would either help? And I need to know banal stuff, like, will drinking a whole lot of water help? Is he going to be able to hold anything down? I have a lot of demons but heroin, thank god, isn't one of them, so I have no direct experience with this. When we got together he was already through that part but he went back on and now he wants to get clean again and I am willing to do anything in my power to help. So please help me help him.
