Hi, all I am Katlyn from British Columbia. I am happy that I found a place that would help my dad in his situation. My dad is 60+. He was diagnosed with RA three years before and he is under medicines for that. Last year an unexpected thing happened in our life and he is into alcohol addiction. The unexpected thing was the loss of his business and this was because his partner betrayed him. This was something that he couldn't even imagine. He was that close to him and it was all his life earnings and efforts that he invested in his business, so this thing made a huge influence in his life and is totally into alcohol and smoking. It's like an addiction now.Every health check up is making me down to because the RA is still the same and the doc says its due to the alcohol.I am confused. I talked to my boyfriend about this so he was telling to make him attend an addiction treatment at Edgewood ( https://www.edgewood.ca/ ) which is near to our place. I don't know whether this place would take care of a person with RA.Should I make him undergo an addiction treatment or change his RA doc? Is there any ways to take medications for both at a time? Or is there any problem in making him undergo a treatment of this sort, as he is already taking medicines for RA? The convincing part is very difficult. I am not able to do. I have tried doing that. But nothing worked.Suggest me a solution that I should be doing in this situation.
Thanks in advance.
