See doctor: The issue may be more than one meth use. It would be prudent to see a doctor for an initial assessment and to ascertain if he needs to be seen by a psychiatrist.
Wish you both good health!

Meth is Poison: Bad drug with horrendous consequences. Likely there needs to be major intervention ASAP to stabilize him and reach a level of stability. Anticipate a favorable outcome, but he cannot return to drugs, as it can be a complete destruction of his future. See Psychiatrist ASAP, and get started.
