I don't know what to do anymore by

Hi Jess, I'm really sorry to hear what a hard time you're having because of your boyfriend's addiction. I am worried that you say he is abusive so you might want to know the National Domestic Violence Helpline, as they will be best placed to give you advice on your situation and what to do next. Their number is 0808 2000 247 and it is free to call, open 24 hours a day, and calls are confidential. You could also look at Women’s Aid’s website, they are the national charity working to keep women and children safe and they have a directory of local support services which you can find here - http://www.womensaid.org.uk/azrefuges.asp Also I work for a charity called The Icarus Trust that supports the families of addicts and if you get in touch with us you could speak with one of our trained and experienced volunteers. Talking to one of them might help. You can contact us on help@icarustrust.org or visit the website www.icarustrust.org Hope that this helps. Keep yourself safe.
