Family Member or friend
My son is 17. He is addicted to cannabis and takes alcohol and other drugs.
My husband and I are health professionals with three talented children that were living a privileged life. The last 18 months has been a humbling experience, and
I don’t fully share with friends or family who I don’t think will respond in a way that supports me. I feel less shame as time goes on as there is no way forward with shame.
I live hoping my boy doesn’t succumb to a more devastating drug or suicide. Addiction has rocked our family.
