Son on Drugs
Posted by welshspark on 2 January 2015.
My wife and I are at our wit’s end due to our son’s constant ongoing battle with drugs, he is now 29 but from the age of 14, he has been uncontrollable. Maybe that is the wrong word because we have three sons and he is the youngest, but he seems to go out of his way to cause problems when he is on a downer. In truth at times, he can be the best loving son in the world and we are so proud of him, but then someone switches a trigger in his brain and then no one can get through to him. He becomes angry and very aggressive he gets in to trouble with the police and even tried to commit suicide 3 times. It is all down to the people he hangs around who are either drug dealers or users; he started on the weed but then moved on to coke. Due to his addition we have had to help him out financially and pay his drug dealers over 7k and this is all over the last 12 months. We have tried all the government help lines and the likes of Frank 24/7 all a total waste of time our own doctor is unable to help. So if anyone can suggest where we can get the help we desperately need before its too late I would be very grateful, as my wife has had a breakdown because of him has said it would be better for the family if he was dead I know she does not mean this but I guess there are people out there who know exactly where she is coming from.
