New Stepmom...having some trouble adjusting.

So my BF and I have been together for almost a year and a half. He has a 2 year old and a 3 year old. The BM has been in the picture, but she is addicted to drugs. She cheated on him and even was found to be using while she was pregnant with her daughter. She refuses to get a job and acts like a child. Even her family members have begun siding with us on allowing her to see the kids. She goes into crazy rages in front of the kids and always manages to cause some kind of dramatic scene whenever she doesn't get her way. I keep hoping that she will just go to rehab and stop acting crazy in front of the kids. We have them permanently now and they are such sweethearts. I just don't know how to get rid of this feeling that I am waiting for her to cause some other big catastrophe. It's hard because he still has to deal with her multiple times a day because she will call him repeatedly to scream and rant. I hate that he has already gone through this entire process with someone else, and that that someone else has to be so terrible. I am absolutely not leaving because I love my BF and his kids and we are planning to get married. We are entering the territory of what does his kids call me, etc. Am I wrong to feel that a woman that puts meth above her kids should not be in the picture at all until she cleans up? Any advice would be welcome.
