Despair, disbelief, anguish and shame, those are some of the feeling you feel when you have a child who is addicted to drugs. It’s so very hard to comprehend that this can be happening to “my family.” When your child is hurting, you feel his pain and yours. You want to scoop him up, no matter his age, and make it better. Your family is falling apart and you are helpless. You feel responsible and you can’t fix it.
Drug addiction is not like any other debilitation disease. You can’t go to the doctor and get drugs that will manage the disease. Drugs is not the cure, it’s the problem. You cry and pray he will be safe and one day turn his life around. We are thankful that day came just over a year ago. His life spiraled out of control and he was willing and ready to take his life back. Through rehab and hard work we are proud he learned the skills to cope with life’s stresses without drugs. Cautious, encouraged, proud and hopeful are the feelings we have today having a child in recovery.
