Hi, I'm trying desperately to help my husband as he has been suffering from depression for the past 3 years now. We agreed he would leave his job end of Oct 2012, as he became very unhappy, had a new boss which didn't help, and had become very stressed because of it all. Since then, he has been great trying to find work and helping to look after our little one but he has always struggled to stay away or control his alcohol/medicine(drugs) intake. Things have gotten so bad now that I found out he had been taking some pills from our medicine box because I refused to buy alcohol or keep any in the house. During the day, he seems fine and functions as per usual, but later afternoons, at night and on weekends, he falls to pieces. I know he has many past issues which he has not managed to resolve/forgive himself for, and now it appears he has given up completely. As a result of it all, I've realised he needs professional help but have no idea where to go so please could you advise me please?
