What if my wife totally denies that she is using meth?

What if my wife totally denies that she is using meth, and displays all of the symptoms, and is even violent and aggressive?

How do I get help for my wife who swears up and down that she doesn't do meth and quit years ago, but displays all of the symptoms? If I even ask her about it she goes ballistic... breaking and throwing things, calling me every thing but decent. I need help, she needs help, what can I do?

Meth causes pychosis, please be careful!
by: Debbie Wicker

Methamphetamine often causes major mental disturbances when someone is addicted to it. Violence and aggressive behavior can be symptoms of psychosis and meth addiction. If she is having other psychotic symptoms she could become dangerous to you and to herself.

Your wife needs to go to a doctor to address her aggressive and violent behavior. You need to be careful and to protect yourself from any violent outbursts she may have. Calling the police is also a good option because they may be willing to do a civil commitment depending on their assessment of the situation.

I would recommend you begin attending Al-anon meetings in your area right away. Al-anon teaches us how to deal with addiction in our loved ones without enabling their addiction in any way.

Going to Al-anon and working the 12 steps will help you to better understand the situation you're in, and also help to clarify what you need to do to help your wife out of this dangerous and unhealthy circumstance.


No enabling
by: Anonymous

Don't enable your wife. That means shutting down the checking or savings account. You may need to get an intervention going to save her. She will not quit till she hits bottom.

I'm an ex meth user. We are good at keeping secrets, and manipulating. My family took my son away and my ex husband divorced me. It was a blessing! I am drug free today and sober and have my son back in my life. I am living the best life now. I'm glad I didn't die or prostitute or use needles. I'm glad my loved one's bottomed me out!!! I have the best life today!!!
