I am the parent of a 25 year old adult male that has a drug addition problem. He lives with my ex-husband. He is currently seeing a doctor to get suboxone and has had several relapses.
He has run out of money is his savings to pay is medical bills which are very expensive and his father has assumed the responsibility of paying his bills for him. This is financially strapping his family and he is now turning to me for financial support to help pay my adult child’s bills for him.
I don’t know what to do. I want to help but I feel that paying his bills is enabling the situation. My adult child has a job but seems to never have money of his own.
It is a hard reality for any parent to let their child suffer but I feel that his father keeps padding his fall and he won’t want to get better if someone else his paying all his expenses.
I need advice PLEASE!
