My 17 year old son is taking drugs and I believe selling
Posted by Diana on 20 December 2013.
I just don't know what to do or who to turn to for help and advise. My lovely boy is turning into a stranger. About 18 months ago he started dabbling with weed my husband and I found out, confronted him and he denied it for months but on regular evidence had to eventually admit it but said lots of his friends did it socially and no big deal. We have accepted that we can try and give all the advice and let him know the risks and dangers but at the end he takes no notice of us . It now seems to have moved on and he is now taking something called mkat as I have seen conversations on his Facebook . I am sure that he is also now selling. I just don't know what to do. We have tried talking but my son is now so far away from who he was. Has lost all his old friends and just won't have anything to do with us other than using the home as somewhere to sleep. I read and read to find answers and advice on how best to help my son. I have spoken N to the website frank and been to talk to the doctor . None seemed to be able to offer much help other than to say to keep supportive and not to judge him and that he will need to decide to stop. I am so worried that I am doing too little or saying too much or just handling it all wrong. I am terrified.
