My daughter just got out of a 6 week detox and rehab for heroin addiction. Her boyfriend of 13 years is in jail right now for burglary because of this addiction they have had.
She is 29 and he is 27, they have an 11 year old and a 5 year old children. My daughter and her children live with us now and have lived with us off and on for the last 7
My wife and I had no idea of the depth of Angela’s addiction, when I thought i was paying her rent, buying the children clothes, helping with her bills, I was really funding her addiction. I feel so dumb!!
We have met with her boyfriend’s parents and we both agree that they are toxic when they are together. We expressed that to Angel and she will not hear anything about it.
She has been out of contact with him for the six weeks she was in rehab, but since she is out now it seems like all her effort is going to reach out to him and not take care of herself and her children.
I don’t know how to handle this the right way, I have never like this guy and always told her what a loser he is and I don’t want to say the wrong thing and have her relapse.
Although, if and when he gets out of prison I know she will go back to him and that WILL lead her to relapse. I just don’t know…..My wife and I are out of ideas and at our wits end……..HELP!!!
