I'll keep this brief, as I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post in. To cut a very long story short, my (very) young adult daughter is currently rolling around the city streets after becoming addicted to smoking oxy. Never in a million years did I imagine this would happen, but here I am; desperate, heart-broken, angry, hurt, lost, confused, ashamed, and generally utterly broken that we have lost our daughter to this wretched disease.
I simply don't know what to do, where to turn, or how to help. She refuses to see she has a problem, and as she's an "adult" (I use the term loosely) I have no legal recourse and cannot control her or force her into rehab. The only thing we have control over is our own behavior and - as devastating as it is - is to refuse to enable her. We gave her an ultimatum - stay home and get help, or choose theft, dishonesty, sneakiness, and drug-use. She chose the drugs, and walked out with the clothes on her back and a shoulder bag with some random things in it.
Please - any advice, point me to the correct forum, private message me, anything. I am desperate, heart-sick, and lost. I feel like I am just sitting here, expected to carry on with life-as-normal, and wait for the knock on the door to say my DD has been found dead in some seedy motel from an OD.
