Suspected drug use?

by Hena

After suspecting drug use by my sister for months/years, just found stash of pills, prescriptions, snorting tubes in her room.

Flushed it all down the toilet.

I’m acting emotionally and need help figuring out the best way to help her?

You Need A Plan

by: Ned Wicker

I can understand your reaction and I am sure it was out of love, but sadly it probably caused quite a ruckus, didn’t it? Confronting your sister or flushing the pills is going to anger her and she’ll push you away.

What you need is support. Al-Anon is a great first call for you to make. They’re been through your situation with thousands of people and they understand. There is no judgment, no criticism, just understanding and guidance.

Your family needs to be united and there can be no weak links. Your sister will try to divide and conquer because her addiction demands every ounce of her being.

Family does not matter.

Work is of no consequence.

Relationships are not important.

Addiction needs feeding. Get some help and support for you and your family, then you can move forward and try to help your sister. Don’t do it alone.

I definitely agree with Ned’s comments, especially about you going to Al Anon meetings.

Your sister should attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings or Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

You could also contact a medical doctor, a counselor or a rehab. center for advice and help.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE! There is a lot of help out there.

I have a son who is a drug addict who I believe is now in recovery. I am a recovering alcoholic (I have not drank for 25 years). I know the great pain that can come from finding out that someone you love has been using.

Good luck and I will say a prayer for you-Lynette
