I have a 25yr old son living at home and increasingly feel he is using drugs - coccaine. I think he might only be a weekend user when at the same time consuming copious amounts of alcohol. His moods come Monday are unbearable - agressive/abusive behaviour, total lack of respect for either my husband or me or our home which he lives very comfortably. His personal cleanliness is somewhat to be desired and it is like treading on egg shells 100% of the time (even when he is not around!). We find it very difficult to deal with leaving my husband and me at total loggerheads and constanty arguing abut his behaviour etc. We have asked him to leave the family home many times due to his behaviour but he refuses and tells us to leave. Have brought in the police to deal with him on a number of occasions but they just give him a ticking off and ask him to stay away a couple of days until things cool down. At a total loss what to do but just to walk away and leave them to it...
