We have a member of our community who is a mother of an addict and is in need of some help. Can anyone share experience about what a mother or father can do to help a child to look at and get help for their addiction?
I am a mother of a son who is in recovery and has been for 5 years. Every day I am grateful for his health. The fog has lifted….still gets cloudy. Looking back right now the road was pretty rough. I suggest Al Anon for you. I felt helpless in the craziness that comes from living with addiction. I continue to “work the program.” I NEVER would give up. I NEVER quit loving him. I didn’t really know the kind of help The Retreat offers was available until we finally drove there.
The best help a parent can give to their drug addict child is to put him in a rehab center.You have done the best thing for your child and I too hope that God blesses him with strength to overcome his problem and that he gets back home soon,leaving his problem behind. God Bless.
