Heart break

Posted by Tinkerbell on 1 March 2018.

My son is 25 and has Asperger he dabbled with smoking weed from early teens and moved to cocaine then heroin and is now on a methadone programme. I’m sure he still smokes weed and cocaine and most certainly causes immense heartache and distress to me my husband and extended family. He left home at a young age but moved back into the family home a year ago, the pressure of his life struggles has caused great distress on a daily basis he has stolen from us whilst living rent free in our home while we mentally and financially supported him untill the day I realised he had set up a pay pal account using my credit card details taking regular money from my account which was the final straw. My 21 year old son was away with the army but 15 year old son lived the trauma and upsetvof everyday with us. 
If something good could come of this I prayed he would see the upset this lifestyle caused and would keep him away from the wicked nectar, but no I’ve learned today that he too smokes weed and I am beside myself I don’t know which way to turn or what to do to help him.

We have experienced, trained volunteers who you would understand what you are going through. Talking with one of them may help you to see the way ahead.

I hope that this helps.Good luck.
