My son

Posted by Mrs M on 3 August 2015.

I have just discovered my son is using crystal meth.  He has a successful job and has spent 10 years trying to be the best he can.  He works very long hours and late evenings.  He had a marital breakdown and started to use this substance as a crutch to make him feel a little better.
His partner has remained with him, he has told her he is addicted to this substance.  She is standing by him and he has agreed to try rehab.  He has been to a few sessions, but my problem is that he is in Australia.  I am in the UK and have no clue how I can help him.  I suggested going to Australia to be with him, he does not want me to.  I am at my wits end and it is affecting me as I cant sleep and I am very emotional.  Can anyone suggest anything that I could do to help

I'm trying to figure out how to help someone I live too and I have no real advice accept arm yourself with as much knowledge about addiction and his choice drug as possible.  We can only help them if they want to be helped and hopefully it sounds like your son does and has support with his partner. Be strong and try and bit let it rule your life. Easier said than done I know. Take care.
