thinking my son is using again

My 37 yr old son is an addict.  He has been in prison for it.  He has been out and working a job for 9 months.  I am sure he is using but not sure what it is this time.  He slurrs his words and his eyes droop, and when he talks he appears to almost fall asleep.  I am thinking Zanax or oxy...any ideas

if you "think" he is...he probably is.   what's that saying?  "if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and swims like a duck...it must be a duck."

have you asked him about it?
