My son's addiction is killing us both

I am scared that I am losing my son to drug addiction. I have the same story as most. An intelligent, loving, had a bright future, etc. son who has changed into a full blown drug addict over the last 12 years. We are in the chronic stage. My life savings of 35 years is almost gone, I am at the point where I am financially, mentally, physically exhausted. His addiction has become my obsession as an enabler. I see no way out other than the hope of dying and walking into the arms of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I would do anything to take this madness out of my sons life, but I am powerless and helpless to fix something that I have no control over. He does not live with me. I provide him with an apartment and pay all his bills. At least I know he is not homeless. I am homeless, so he doesn't have to be. My life has been on hold.....having my own place, having a life, having peace, etc. This is so far out of control and doesn't seem real. How did it get this far :( His reckless addiction and my enabling.....has created a world of hell for both of us. I don't know how or what to do.
