    Been caught and 'recovered' multiple times. The last time I was pregnant with dd and a court date was mailed to us. Apparently he'd been caught trying to buy on the street. I flipped out and he went to hazeldon. In the last 2.5 years, he's been in suboxone and a variety of anti depressants. But basically sober. Tonight I discovered he's hiding beer in the basement. What do I do? He's a great husband and father to my 2 kids but what the f?! I'm very concerned. Wwyd?
