Is she willing to go to rehab? Depending on where you live, you may or may not be able to send her to rehab unless she is willing. Some places allow for involuntary commitment, others do not. I would suggest you contact local treatment centers and your insurance and start asking questions about what to do next. She would probably first need an evaluation to determine where she would be placed, if she qualifies. Having her cooperation, though, may be the other missing piece that you may need to go forward.

In the meantime, plug into places like Narcotics Anonymous or Al-Anon meetings that are support for family members of people struggling with addiction. They would be able to give you advice and moral support as you go through this. Good luck.
