how do I deal with my 18 yr old grandaughter who is a heroin addict?
(Pittsburgh PA USA)
My granddaughter has been using heroin since Dec 2012. She finally went to a suboxone clinic and failed the drug test twice. She called me and asked me if she could come and stay with me to get clean. I said yes.
She stayed one day and then left with a friend. She now is staying with a recovering addict and said that she needs a couple more days to decide if she wants to go as an inpatient or outpatient. She has lied to her parents, stolen from them, lied to me.
We are at our wits end and don't know what to do. We can't force her to go because she is 18 but we are afraid of losing her to this horrible drug!
