    I went through this with my now 26 year old about 2 years ago. We got her into BAART after trying a few other places. She has been off of it now for over a year but is still taking methadone. At BAART she sees a counselor & a Dr & they do drug testing to make sure you aren't using. She lives at home & recently has started working again. It's a long process but things do get better.

    What's BAART? I'm so happy for you, and her.

    This is part of addiction that just blows. I had to cut 2 of my brothers loose. They hated me for it, how can I desert my blood relatives?, I'm oh so uppity now that I got clean, he's too good for us now... etc. One is now dead, the other close to it. You just can't be part of the life they choose or you'll get sucked further in.

    I feel for all you guys so much. I know it's heartbreaking.

    I'm so saddened to hear all this. I wish I knew some great advice to give you but I'm at a loss. If you just need somewhere to vent and/or listen, I'm right here.
