32 year old step daughter addicted to crack cocane

My step daughter is addicted to crack cocane. She has a four year old daughter and has been using for about a year. A few days ago she informed me of her addiction but asked if I would not tell her dad. She told me she had been off the drug for 5 days. I decided for the best interest of my step daughter and grand daughter I would tell her father. He was upset and went to talk to her. She feels she can do this with outside support like 12 step. I feel she needs to go to a inpatient facility but she does not want her x-husband finding out because he might try to get custody. My husband wants to give her another chance but I'm so scared she will start using again and we will not know about it. Worried!!
