I just found out that my 26 year old sister is addicted to pain killers not only that but she told me the reason she got on them in the first place is because she was raped, got pregnant from the rape and had an abortion. All this in the last year. I knew of none of this and feel like complete shit for not being there for her.
Also to pay for her addiction she has been stealing money from our parents.
Nobody knows of this but me and one of her friends. I think she has to come clean with our parents AND seek medical help with her addiction and to heal from what has happened to her should talk to a psychologist.
My question is should I pressure her to do this? I am living on the other side of the country and can’t be around physically for help her and I am worried that she will go back on the pills or push everyone away from her.
I am so worried for her and don’t know what to do.
