My teen daughter has a severe drug & alcohol problem. Right now she is rehab for the 2nd time. She overdosed in March coming w/in 2 hours of death. We attend NA meetings. But she has been relapsing the past couple months. Recently she was raped. She leaves the house in the middle of the nite and I'm constantly having to look for her. I'm exhausted frm lack of sleep and my nerves are shot. I realize that she has to want to quite. I just don't know what to do any more. I'm terrified that eventually I may not find her in time before the next trajedy. Any advice on how to help her? She is even in intensive counseling. The pain of watching her suffer these addictions is unbearble. Her brother is distraught as well. I fear when the weekends approach because the chase begins. I am constantly having to do room raids. It's just become too much to handle alone as a single parent. Has anyone else gone thru this?
