My child has been on heroin for years, what can I do?
Dealing with a child that has a serious drug problem can be an emotional rollercoaster.
The withdrawal symptoms from heroin can be very severe and it may take several attempts before your child successfully break their addiction even with medical support. Remember, your child must WANT to stop using drugs first. There are however, many different methods of treatment and support groups which your child can use to encourage them.
You may also want to look into support groups for family members. This is a good opportunity for you to voice your feelings and see how others are coping.
