My daughter is 23 and my husband and I have custody of her son who is now 4 years old. We let her move back in our home because she started going to a Methadone Clinic and has been clean going on 3 months. I wanted her to go to a recovery home but instead she was living with my ex husband who is in denial of their addiction. My son was using in front of my daughter so I chose to let her move back with us to give her a better chance on her recovery. I lost my nephew last year on December 20, 2013 to an heroin overdose. So our family has been going thru a rough time. Me and my husband participate in a family support group every Tuesday. It is depressing at times, it helps too and I've met so many people going thru the same thing. I am still trying to get up the courage to start going to Narnon meetings and getting myself a sponser. I am struggling with detaching from my son. I do good for a while then I talk to him and I let him visit. He tells me that he's doing good but I can tell he's not. I love him so much but I'm so afraid he's going to die. He's already overdoesed last year and almost died. I feel like I am dieing inside. I cry almost everyday and I feel no one understands what this is doing to me.

Whomever is sober and actively working on recovery should be the ones you put your energy into and allow to live in your home. If there is a relapse, and there may well be, out they go to rehab.
Addiction is such an insidious disease! Even though your daughter is clean right now, I advise you to hide your purse, and lock up all of your jewelry and valuables. I don't understand the relationships? Is this or daughter and son-in-law or vice versa?
