My child recently left home because she didn't want to be in our home town anymore. Relatives in another town were meant to be looking after her but one of them has somehow got her involved with crack. I am desperate and don't know what to do. I have tried to get her to understand that she is so loved and valued and that all i want is for her to take proper care of herself. The moment she got her Christmas presents and i was on train back home she apparently event to the train station toilets and opened them. I think that she needed to see if there was anything worth trading or selling. She says that she only did crack twice but i find that very hard to believe. I think the relative who got her involved in this told me either out of spite or because he needed me to help her.  Who knows

Icarus Trust
5 Jan 2015

Hi Cookie,
I work for a charity called The Icarus Trust. We support people like yourself who are dealing with the affects of addiction. If you would like to talk to someone who may be able to help, we have experienced trained volunteers called 'Family Friends'. These have experienced similar issues to yourself and would understand where you are coming from. It may help you to talk with one of them.
You can contact us on or visit the website 
Good luck.
