My son is on heroin and I need help.
My son has a history of addiction, and when he was younger, we sent him to a rehab facility in Tuscon AZ. It didn't work.
As he has grown older he has progressed to ever stronger drugs, and we have now discovered that he has been smoking heroin for at least six months. He does not live with us as he is in the States and we are in London, but we have been supporting him through college and living expenses for the past few years, as we thought that he had eventually decided to go forward with his life.
Clearly we were wrong and now we have to cut him off as we have done in the past. He shows no desire to get well, but I now need to take care of myself as I am just going through the motions of getting though the day.
Also, I have two other children and need to get stronger so that I can be a mother to them. I have had various bouts of therapy in the past, but I was wondering if attending Al-anon meetings might be an alternative or supplement to this?
