How can I get myself out of this negative downward spiral

Posted by CB on 18 November 2016.

Over the past 11 years my son now 27 has gone on a downward spiral that has resulted in prison for many various criminal offences  , stealing from his family ,a failed relationship that has resulted in a wonderful 17 month old grandson that is just so beautiful ,my son doesn't really see him much .He is now a self confessed drug addict ,  I am now as his father completely uncertain of my relationship with my son , who I am starting to hate but love. There is more to this background that needs explaining to someone who has shared a similar journey. Can anyone assist
