Cross addiction is extremely common. When he drinks and takes the methadone he will get high. So he is still chasing the high and not ready to admit he is still in active addiction.
Has he started meetings or counseling?
Have you gone to any alanon meetings?
Addiction is a merry go round and roller coaster until he gets off and changes his way of thinking the cycle will continue.
Sending hope and encouragement
