My son has been using drugs for more than 5 years, under our roof while we are in the next room. We saw the warning signs many years ago and trusted and believed in him that he was being honest with us. We bailed him out of every debt he incurred, we gave him money for friends birthday presents, spending money to go out and enjoy friends company. Lies, Lies Lies! We were giving him money to support his drug habit. The most frustrating part of this is that our voices are silenced by this f'd up system that just simply does not work. As parents you have to shut up and do nothing. This is bullshit, if we had more rights to get help for our loved ones we wouldn't be having such a problem in our society with drugs. The users and abusers have more rights than the abused and the ones suffering in silence.
