Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
First of all dear, try to calm down. I know that this is a huge shock to you and your family, but try to realize that an addiction is an "illness". The best way you can help your son at the moment is to be supportive, and be there for him...no matter what. Try really hard to keep from telling him how "wrong" he has been...as he already knows this, or how he is ruining his life. A lot of the time, these things sneak up on people because they have problems in their life that they feel like they can not deal with, and are to ashamed to ask for help, before they realize it, they are addicted, and do not know what to do. The only thing in the world that they have, are the people who love them, and are willing to stand behind them and support them no matter what. He realizes the trouble that he is in, and this just might be what it takes to help him to realize his problem and "want" to get clean. The police officers will be glad to guide you through the processes that he will go through there...and they will understand that you as parents, had nothing to do with your son being addicted. I have included a link for you to get your son help in your city and state. They will also tell you about support programs to help you and your family, help your son to deal with his addiction. Just click on the link, and it will tell you where to go from there. Make the call...for your son. You will be glad you did. And by the way...I commend you on your love and dedication to your son. Many parents would have given up on their child by now, and your love and support is admirable.
Good luck to you and your family, you are in my prayers!
