First you should know that any kid doesn't try meth as a starter drug. You should be very worried and scared to death. From what I have heard it can be addicting from the first taste and very hard to stop. Did he confess or did you stumble onto the information? And how long has he been "experimenting"? How did he gain access to the meth? I know you don't want to hear this, but until you have all the answers and know he is safe you should be asking very tough questions everytime he leaves the house. Also I would invest in an at home drug kit and see what that shows. It may be expensive, but you might get priceless answers. Are there any close friend that he spends a lot of time with that you are friends with the parents? Odds would be that kid has been doing the same thing and maybe you could have back-up in this battle. School counselor or even a local drug/alcohol counselor might have answers for you. Just be careful and protect yourself. He is not only got normal hormones to deal with, anger can be heightened by drugs. We all have to remember that our sweet babies do become big enough to hurt themselves and even us in fits of anger. I wish you the best of luck and beg you to never give up hope. What you do now can help him have a future.
