Find a good counseling/rehab centre and offer to go along with him.
Keep reminding him of how special he is to his precious girls.
Educate yourself so you know what lies ahead.

Don't enable him financially.
Pray.
Good Luck

how long has he been in jail?
....if long enough to be steady...or if not very long.

My advice is...

TRY to...

.....Have fun, have love, have joy, make him smile, snuggle, cook good food for him in French maid outfits with no panties.
bond, connect, look deeply in his eyes and search for his soul...
...show him yours...hold him and radiate love thru your pores into his.
...give him massages, put a shower curtain on the bed and
slather oil on you both and slide all over him.
have picnics...
...lay in the grass and look at the sky.
show him what else there is.
....send him either to NA or my website. so he can be with other speed freaks sometimes so he'll feel like he's part of the world.
....the disassociation from meth PLUS prison...is hardcore.
he'll return to that world, if this one has nothing for him.

1. Stop trying to find the answer to that question. YOU will never have the power to keep him from doing anything. Only he has that power. Let the responsibility for his actions lie where they should -- with him.

I think you have received some really good advice, but bottom line is that it will be his decision. Good Luck

Be his very best friend, and listen. That is all that you can do. And as Loraura said above- stop trying to find the answers- he is the only one that holds the power to want to stay clean.
