First off I didnt know where to post this but emotional seem right… maybe.
I have a friend who just had a lovely baby in May, and we have been friend for a really long time. I havent heard from her in a few months but still tried to contact her ever so often so she knew I was still there for her (she has struggled with addiction since high school and she got clean because she got pregnant and she wanted to turn her life around). Well I just got a call from her saying that child protective services was called on her for doing some very very bad drugs… So she had to take a few tests and she will find out this week if this drug showed up on her test… Well I guess she has been doing it for 5 months now and says she cant stop but has to for her child (honestly I have thought she is a good caring mother but to me if mother isnt healthy then baby isnt healthy…) if CPS finds out she has been doing this crap baby gets taken away from her.
babies are innocent, the baby cant change his like but his mother needs to change if for him so that the baby doesnt grow up with an addict mother. she needs to change her life for her little baby…
she poured her heart out to me, she feels like she cant control what she does and she feels dependant on this drug… (addiction is really high in her family). I told her she need to get some help because she cant do it on her own (even though I am alway here to help guide her) but she doesnt want help because she doesnt want everyone to think she is an addict (NO ONE KNOW BUT ME). I told her getting help wouldnt be showing you are weak or addicted but it will show that you know you have a problem and you want to fix it (you want to be stronger!) She cant fight this on her own plus it doesnt help that the people whom she hangs out with do this crap.
Drugs and addictions are scary!!! I have NEVER had to deal with something like this, I hardly drink and I have never done drugs either… So I dont know what to think, do or say to her… I feel like I should be the one to reach out and help her but I dont know how… I am the only one who she trusts and I am the only one who knows all abut it. I dont want to turn my back on her either because I know I am her only friend (well only sober friend who cares about her well being…)
I dont know what to do or where to turn, but she needs help… what should I do?!
