Hurt And Confused

My husband is addicted to oxycontin.  I became aware of it when I got a credit card bill for over $7000.00 in a one month period.  When I confronted him about it, I was lied to and told he had a gambling problem.  It quickly became clear that this was not gambling problem.  I questioned him multiple times and finally was told the truth, that he was addicted to these pills.  I did what I could to support him and contacted our health insurance about a chemical dependency program.  He was ready to start treatment when he lost his job.  This was a double whammy.  Now, I am not only dealing with a drug addict but also supporting a family of five on my income, which isn't enough.  He attended this treatment program for 6 weeks, 7 days a week.  When he graduated, he started the task of finding work and lucky for him, it came within a month.  I thought that my life was finally getting back on track until today.  His bank statement arrived and showed that he was overdrawn in his bank account.  I thought this was odd because he had no money for the last 2 months.  I was finally able to get out of him (after much lying that the bank screwed up!) that he had actually got a disability check that I had been waiting for and deposited it in his bank and had spent the entire check in a matter of days on a relapse.  He says "everyone relapses" like it is an excuse or something.  He doesn't seem sorry and continues to defend his actions.  I just kicked him out of the house tonight and I am scared.  Scared and worried that he will do something stupid but also because I have three children to support on my own now.  I love him but when is enough enough?  I don't think he really wants the help.

To me it sounds like it is time to say "enough".
