My 21 yr old daughter was addicted to heroin for 3 months. We put her thru 30 days inpatient treatment in December. She got out January 1st- New year, new life! Not. She relapsed within 10 days for 4-5 days. She dropped her outpatient treatment, refuses to go to NA, has picked back up with loser boyfriend (but he's clean, Mom, and doing really good) I kicked her out of the house 2 weeks ago for failing to adhere to the rules her and I established and agreed upon together. She lives out of her car, staying with friends here and there. She blew off her councelor this week, her job performance is sketchy (she always shows up but is frequently late and is not consistent in her work) but she is making her car payment and keeping up the insurance. I am convinced by her lies and behavior that she is using something, I suspect speed of some kind. The fact that she doesn't care enough to improve her situation breaks my heart. She has thrown away her family and friends for this loser and this new lifestyle. I am trying to let go and believe that she will come around but its killing me! How do I stop myself from caring more about her than she does?
