My son just came back from living in Montana for 2 years and I thought that he had been staying off drugs while he was there but found out he was using there as well. Now that he is back in my hometown, he has been high almost the whole time and it frightens me so much, I don't know what to do anymore, I've tried to get him to open up and talk about why he is hurting inside, he even tells me that nothing is wrong and I worry too much, any mother no matter how old our child is, we will still worry! He has no place to live, no money, no food, no anything. I think he's been doing some little odd jobs to get his drugs and I have even tried to get him into a men's shelter, which they already told me they would put him into detox and once he got through the hard part, then they would really try to help him with a roof over his head, getting him a job, and just trying to get him into the right direction, I realize he has to want the help but I'm so dam afraid he will end up dead and I don't know if I could handle loosing a child. He has had a very hard life, he wants to be like his younger brother, he wants to succeed in life but doesn't know how to get there. What do I do about him? I so worry 24/7, I can't sleep because I'm always thinking about where he is, if he is cold and hungry and is he hurt? He needs to get clean, I hope and pray my son will realize what he is doing and stop using and start a right path for himself. This is so hard on any parent, nobody wants to see there child hurting and struggling everyday.
