My son is 36 years old. He is a heroin addict and has been for the past 11 years that I know but he will do any drug he can get a hold of. I am my 11 year old grandson's permanent guardian and have been for 10 years.
I have enabled my son for this entire time bringing him and picking him up from one rehab to another and picking him up from jail when he gets out. Ever time this happens I let him stay with me because he has no where else to go. He might stay clean for a week at a time. He has stolen my debit card, sold my grandson's IPod the list can go on and on.
I had him sectioned because he overdosed several times had numerous infections from syringes. This last episode a month and a half ago he stayed clean for 3 days and I found him shooting heroin in my bathroom. I called the police and he was arrested he is in jail now on $5,000 bail he goes back to court on the 16th of this month.
Anyway I am finally done with him I cannot do anything for him. His attorney has told me the court is looking at a 6 month sentence. This is the first time I haven't step foot in jail to visit him. I cannot stop crying it is just hitting me now and I want to go see him. Anyone's opinion would be greatly appreciated.
IF I GO VISIT HIM IN JAIL IS THIS ENABLING HIM?????
Thanks for letting me post
