My life at times has become unmanageable when dealing with my two adult addict children. I am looking for some support to try and deal with their day to day crap.

You should look up information on the Betty Ford Center, Al-Anon meetings, or you can go online and look up A&E Intervention website. They have links for helpful websites. I hope this helps you. I

Hey there. Sorry you are going through that. I'm not sure you can have a relationship with them until they are clean. If you are forced to "act" like they don't have a problem, that is in a way enabling them also. Have you contact AA? They have groups for family members of addicts. If they don't, they may be able to give you contacts for places/groups that do.
