That's wonderful @chickieDo I'm so glad to hear it.
Have you ever tried Family Drug Support? They are an organisation centred on supporting families with a loved one, usually a son or daughter, with substance abuse issues. They have a phone line that can be accessed 24 hours a day, across Australia, where you can speak to a trained volunteer who has lived experience in coping with a loved ones' addiction issues. Their approach is very compassionate towards the person struggling with their substance abuse without asking the family to sacrifice their own needs or to enable in any way. In fact, a big part of wat they do is help people develop strategies to implement boundaries and to uphold them. They are also very handy for anything that happens outside of 'office hours'. This is their number 1300 368 186 , you can click here for their website or click here for their new online support.
Let me know what you think.
