Customer Question

Please help me to help my son. He is 31 years of age. Fully qualified carpenter, lives and works with his cousin in High Wycombe. His mother died 5 years ago. For 2 years he washed ,fed,dressed and catered for her. Prior to this I've found out that he has a history of alcohol and drugs. We've reached a situation now where he will go out and get wrecked and be missing for 3 or 4 days. No one knows where he is. We believe he may use prostitutes,never had any long term relationships with any one girl. We believe he is suffering huge guilt problems and turns to alcohol and drugs to combat this situation. I would like your direction on this. I believe he needs some psychiatric help now because we believe he is on such a downward spiral that it won't be long before he is dead. He can still do good work with his job, but I believe that if he worked for someone else he would not last long. When I say we, I refer to his sister and cousin and myself. I live and work miles away from Wycombe but would like to set up a meeting with a psychiatrist in Wycombe to talk things through, with my son,daughter and myself pees. Please give me names and numbers for same in Wycombe. Thank you,Derek Symonds.
