My son is lost
I am the single Mother of a 32 year old son who has struggled with schizophrenia since age sixteen.
He managed well and even completed university courses. He has become addicted to cocaine and I have become almost bankrupt and have been fooled by him.
I have appealed to his mental health team but they won't commit him to hospital. I have called the police to take him to hospital but they wouldn't because he presented so well. I have asked and pleaded for help and intervention. He has been evicted from his apartment and will land on the streets begging so he can get the cocaine. He has expressed suicidal ideation and I fear for his very life.
He has a heart murmur and the next round of cocaine could provoke a fatal heart attack. He needs to be hospitalized but nobody will commit him. He is paranoid and psychotic and fast tracking to either committing suicide or being murdered by the dealers for not paying. I am petrified for his very life and cannot get him to receive treatment because he has absolutely no insight, his mind has been destroyed by the ravages of his mental illness.
I don't know how to help him!
