FYI the forums can be slow during holidays.

You have found an excellent forum. Numerous experienced & very knowledgeable participants. SR helped me tremendously.

I am sorry for what brings you here. I know all too well the destructive nature of addiction & heroin use.

There is a wealth of information to read here. I hope you find what your searching for. For me gaining knowledge concerning addition was the key to both understanding my addict & myself

Please take care

Welcome! I lived that life for 8 years with my son, and when I finally just removed myself from the equation, it made the entire difference for ME! I realized I couldn't do what God could, and that I wouldn't keep repeating the same circle of insanity of trying to control my addict son. We are all here for you when you need us!

Mother of 31 yr.meth addicted daughter. I basically wrestled her to rehab. The rehab didn't really help much because she didn't want it.
I had to stop enabling, financial and stop making excuses for her.
I told her I was here for her when she chooses to make a change.
She is getting better but I try to keep strong boundaries.
I'm also reading lots of nar-anon literature.
Keep posting.
