Advice for drugs please


My sister is only 18, she started seeing an older bloke ,when she was 16, he was 41 then , the worse part he was my dad's bestfriend., he beats her black and blue and she won't leave him and the police won't help, my dad isn't in our lives so he won't help, my mum can't do anything as shes just had a baby.
She kinda went downhill from there, whenever she drank it sent her loopy like it wasn't even her, she screams at my mum and step dad saying awful things, she doesn't care who she hurts. She started using drugs, weed, cocaine and anything else .
She isn't the girl I knew , she's completely changed , she never left the house without making sure her hair wasn't perfect and her make up but now she hasn't even got the same face shape anymore..
It breaks my heart to see her like this as I'm only 17 , I'm desperate for help and advice I don't want drugs and alcohol to end up killing her, so please help

Welcome to the Forum Babak!!

I'm very sorry to hear of what's brought you here.

Unfortunately addiction is one of those things that until the person wants to change and puts the effort into making the change, then it can be a very lonely place looking in from the outside.

Finding support for YOU is the best way forward, and here on SR you'll find loads to help you through this!!

Welcome to the SR family. I'm sorry that your sister is living such a bad life. I'm also sorry that you can't do much to help her other than offer support if she wants it. I hope you can find some support for yourself.

I'm sorry to hear about that Babak. It's hard to help someone that won't help her self. But you still might want to check out the friends and family section here at SR.

It's good to have you with us.

I'm so sorry Babak - it must be very hard for you to stand by and see your sister make these horrible choices.

You've come to a good place for support tho - you'll find a lot of understanding and empathy here

That's terrible to hear, and the ages concerned are bordering paedophilia, I'm sure in some states it would be.

I hope you find some good friends and info here
