If you are fearful that he is using it as an inhalant to get intoxicated, I would definely notify his psychiatrists as inhalants use can result in fatlality.Preservervation of life is the highest of allrequirements..

Im sure that is what he is doing. I have a number of his doctor but of course there is a privacy issue as well. They dont divulge any information to me,he is 27 years old. I shall ring tomorrow,thankyou very much
Expert:  Ralph LMHC replied 7 years ago.


The privacy issue prevents the psychiatrist fro revealing information to you but not fro you sharing with him and as I said the preserveration of life is the most important thin
