Thank You For Your Help

About 6 weeks ago....I learned my 17 year old daughter was addicted to heroin. I was so upset I didn't know what to do. I started reading anything and everything on heroin addiction. Your posts helped me make the decision. She's had a few ups and downs with the suboxone treatment however, she hasn't used heroin...and that's a blessing.... exactly the results I was hoping for when she started the suboxone program. For the last 6 weeks, I've read so many posts from people who are in the same situation or very similar situation. People trying to help themselves or trying to help someone else. I can honestly say I've been given more information, hope and inspiration from the stories I've read than I ever imagined. Your stories helped me see what it really means to be addicted to a drug as powerful as heroin. In essence you helped me help my daughter. I just wanted to thank all of you for sharing your stories, experiences, and feelings.

Just as you are finding help in other people's stories...they are finding help in yours.

Honesty is very important in dealing with addiction recovery and you have shown nothing but complete honesty in dealing with your daughter's addiction. So thank you.

I think that it is the way you use, or define the phrase, Give up on them There are certainly many ways that phrase can be used, understood, misunderstood, abused, and defined. One cannot divorce a child. We all have different feelings and we use our feelings when we embrace definitions.
