My son had an addiction to pills. I tried to help him but he lied to me. He stole money and objects to sell so that he could buy more. I turned him in to the police and they put him in jail for a time to clean up. He came out clean and accepting that I did it for his own good. He has not started up again. The police that you contact have to be willing to let some things slide to do this. Otherwise, they could be in jail for a long time. The one I contacted violated his probation and he just got three months. Enough to do some good without messing him up more.
i have had to deal with this issue. i told them to smarten the f&$%k up and grow up. i'm an ex addict myself so i don't feel sorry for other junkies. though people claim it's a mental illness, i claim it's just stupidity and weakness.
