I found out several months ago that my 19 year old son was taking drugs, he has admitted to taking cocaine in the past and maintains he only smokes dope now. I have paid off his debts, made him take drug tests and had tears and promises that things will change. Over the last two months things have spiralled and I fear he is an addict, maybe he has been for longer and I have been in denial! He is still holding down his job and I fear that its only a matter of time before this changes. My husband is no support whatsoever he does not know how to deal with things and has buried his head in the sand. I have no idea how to help him or where to turn for help myself. I just want my son back and will do anything to help him x
