drug add.
I have two neices that are currently strung out on heavy drugs.Intravenous etc. Her mother is at her end of thr rope. They told her ie. drug hotline to not let them back into her life. They suggested that they are going to die with or without her help..It is so hard for my sister.I feel helpless for her, but I also know that she is a enabler. I used to be codepedant. I had to remove myself totally away from the situation..what can i do to support my sister in her painful state? Linda VI

There will be many on this forum that will provide intelligent and supportive advise for your question.  Please keep monitoring this post.

I can only suggest that both you and your sister become fully knowledgeable of your nieces' problem by reading a lot on this site and others.  Try to get inside the head of an addict.  You will know more about the problem, and find out what you should and should not do.  The major problem is, you and your sister cannot directly fight the demon of addiction, only your nieces can, and must want to. It is very frustrating.

My best to you.

I am 20 and before I wanted to help myself I had to want to.  I know its hard right now I still have plenty of people I love and know that are addicted and use because of it.  Being there for that person or people will be more than they could ask for.  Removing yourself is just putting a bandaid on the situation.  It sounds like you all are very close and I think you could work together and try and get a hold on the situation.
