Hello, I have a 21 yr daughter sitting in County Jail waiting to go to TDC for a 2 yr sentence. They have said that she will probably only serve a few mths. She has been using meth for at least 3 yrs that I know about. Well she broke her probation and they locked her up. She has had to quit cold turkey. I do believe she is a dual diagnosis so that does not help. It has been 3 mths. She has nightmares about needles, sweats, ADHD and depression. She can't be helped until she gets into the system. I myself suffer from CFS/depression. This hasn't helped me. I know right now she is clean. But all she wants is to get out and "prove her family wrong". I am scared for her. What do I do to help her when she gets out. I have 2 younger tweens at home who I don't want this behavior around. But her dad and his family have disowned her. I am her only support system. I know she will use if she gets out unless she gets aggressive help. We have no insurance and she is an adult. I don't want her to return to prison or drugs. I need options. Please. There is no NA meeting in my smaller town. Her father is raising her son while he tells her she is worthless and will never amount to anything. She got pregnant again and he talked her into giving up the baby by telling her he would never support that baby. The day after she gave him up she stuck her first needle in her arm. So she can't break free of him either. Drugs, prostitution and stripping are her life. She needs help. It's hard watching your daughter die such a slow death and not be able to stop it. She says she wants help. I think she just wants to get out as soon as possible. What steps can I take to get her out safely and keep her safe?
