Daughter's opiate addiction?

I hate dealing with my daughter's morphine addiction and continued lying and neglect of her child. I don't like who she has become. Is there any hope she will ever be normal?

Must be working the 12 steps!
by: Debbie Wicker

The short answer is yes your daughter can return back to the person she used to be before the morphine/opiate addiction. Based on the current research about 30% of opiate addicts recover and are able to lead a normal life. Sadly, that means that 70% don't recover from their addiction and it's a fatal disease.

Is your daughter taking the corrective steps necessary to be one of the survivors? Does she go to meeting for NA or AA regularly and is she working the 12 steps? If she isn't then her odds of ever being normal are not good.

My question for you is what steps are you taking to help yourself and to help your daughter? I HIGHLY recommend you begin attending Al-anon meetings THIS WEEK!

I recommend that you go to at least THREE meeting a week and begin to work the 12 steps yourself. Also, try to find a sponsor who has been through what you are experiencing and then listen to your sponsor.

Once you start going to meetings and learning about addiction and how to help your daughter, research shows that she is MUCH more likely to go to meetings too!

If you can get your daughter to start REALLY working the steps she can recover and be the mother and daughter that she should be.

Good Luck!
