Need Teen Challenge, two sons addicted?

by Jeannie

I have tried contacting another teen challenge address. I am desperate. I have two sons 15 and 17 who are addicted to drugs. Not sure what kinds. They have started dealing.

They look terrible have lost a lot of weight, look unwell. I don’t know what to do and I am desperate.

Anyone we have talked with says that they have to be willing to join a treatment program, they are not willing.

Please I am begging you help me if you can. I don’t know what to do?

The Right To Refuse

by: Ned Wicker

Only in America can a 15 and 17 year-old decide whether or not they need treatment for drug addiction because it’s their right not to be treated. Who’s the adult here?

If they won’t go to treatment and they are addicts, just as you say, then stop enabling them and force the issue. Go to Al-Anon and get some support for yourself. There are people there who have the same issues.

If your kids refuse to accept personal responsibility, and insist on selling drugs out of your home, you may want to consider notifying the police.

They cannot be trusted, they are addicted and they involved in a criminal enterprise. The only treatment they may receive is from behind bars. They can get straight and healthy, released when they are 18, and hopefully on the right track.
