    My Daughter Is A Meth Addict

    My Daughter Is A Meth Addict

    My daughter is a meth addict, currently with over a month clean and in rehab. It has been a long hard road, and know it will be lifetime work for her. As a mother I always want to fix everything and make it better. It is so hard to let go, which is what we must do. I have to continually remind myself that "I didn't Cause it, I can't Control it and I can't cure it." My daughter started having problems when she was 13. She had panic attacks, depression, started drinking and smoking pot.

    She was arrested and spent time in juvenile hall. She attempted suicide a few times. She went to a group home for over a year. It was supposed to be a rehab, but what a joke! It did help some, but mostly they kept her very medicated. How are you supposed to learn to deal with your feelings if you are not allowed to feel? Things went well for a while and then she started using meth. Once again our world came crashing down. We had to kick her out, then she moved in, then she left, then back, then out....etc. I told her she could stay if she was clean, otherwise she had to leave. She also had to be respectful of others in the house. So now she is in rehab. The story will never be over as she will always have to fight this awful drug. I have a website with more info if you are interested: Dorothy - Montague, California
