How can i get my son into drug and alcohol rehab against his will?
(San Diego County, CA)
Hi, my son is 19 yrs old, and his an addict to 3 different kind of drugs, one is marijuana, 2nd pure alcohol (tequila), and his abusive girlfriend. It seems like the more i tried to help my son the more we go down the drain with him.
I have tried so many different ways to help him and nothing seems to work. He has Kaiser Permanente insurance, which is the worst insurance when it comes to rehab. I hate it. My son have been having this problem since he was 15 yrs. old, now his 19, he doesn't wanna work or study, he doesn't take showers, he can't even handle the house shores anymore, his always looking for loose change everywhere to buy alcohol, which of course when he can't find any, he goes and does beer runs.
I am so desperate and sad, hopeless, powerless, because i cant help him anymore, i keep asking my self in what moment did i drop the ball, cause i sure don't remember where. i work so hard just for him and at home too, but at this moment i am clueless, i don't know what path to take, I'm always here waiting every night for the one knock on my door from the police saying that he got shot for stealing, or that he got run over by a car because he was drunk and didn't see the car coming, or that his uncontrolled druggie alcoholic girlfriend stabbed him.
I'm so scared, and it's not fair, parents are not supposed to bury their own kids, they supposed to bury us. I keep asking my self, why me? why my son? how and when is this nightmare going to end? I don't wanna throw him to the streets because i know for sure his going to get killed.
Please somebody help me, i need to get my son into a rehab center against his will. i have prayed and ask God to take both of my hands and give me the wisdom and strength to help my son, and he knows how much I've cried and begged him to help me, but no answer. PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP ME!!!!!! :(
