How to deal with a drug addict?
My son is a drug addict, his drug of choice is heroin. He became a father last year and I was hoping and praying that this child would turn his life around but he has gotten worse.
He lies and steals from his own family and therefore no one will take him in. He is currently living on the streets. I just cannot understand what or when his rock bottom is or will be. We have taken this "tough love" approach but now that he is living on the streets, I am afraid that he will overdose now. But at the same time I know that unless he wants to help himself there is nothing anyone can do.
He recently did a 30 day drug program and was then sent to a halfway house. He was only there a week and the house is infested with bed bugs. He then tried to contact the "house manager" of the halfway house and health department, but they kicked him out. He spent 2 days in the hospital for the bed bugs and not being able to see his daughter and the baby's mom harassing him for money just sent him off the deep end and he used again!
Does anyone know if we do a family intervention where there is a place we can get him into for drug help. He has no insurance. I am at a total loss at this point. Please help......
