Try taking her to get help if she refuses give her no option to leave your home .shes an adult an right now its a hard time but she doesn't get help it can get worser an aggressive towards you. Seek help for her.

@ CYNDY M. This is a very old thread; if you'd like advice about your situation or even just support, maybe start a new thread?

It hurts like hell. I need advice too. She hasn't sold for a few years now but I feel like I did her wrong? I stood buy her and eventually she stopped after counselling.

If you figure it out let me know. My son is 22 and got into the drugs, plus he got his drivers license revoked for a year because of alcohol. I hear people always say, I'm going to have a nervous break down, not me, I'm in the middle of one. I've been told to put him on the streets so he will come to his senses. But how can a mom do this. I worry if he has a roof over his head and is he eating. I know you are looking for help and I had none to offer. I thought it might help to see you not alone.

Time for some tough love. It may seem extreme to turn her in, if you can't afford help, but consider the alternative- letting her problems get worse.

I have a bf who is also doing the same thing. .. the only way I stopped him from stealing from me is I his my purse or money. I slept with my wallet under my pillow for awhile. She has to hit rock bottom in order for her to consider rehab. Kick her out and stop all contact from her until she gets help. Or you can try offering places she can get help, but she has to want it for herself. I had to kick my bf out, cut all contact, and we just had a baby. It's tough love but that's the only way they'll change. Good luck. Ps. Bf is 2 months clean. . but everyday is still a struggle.

GET HER IN REHAB ASAP! A rehab that is far from where you live.

Before it's to late... she's 26.

Look into the show Intervention.
