14 year old daughter on legal highs

Posted by Upsetmum on 24 October 2015.

I am lost as where to turn, I've tried the police, Drs, School, Multiagency Team for support and nothing is being done. I am a paramedic and I am so afraid of seeing my child like the ones I attend. I am depressed and alone. Can anyone suggest where to try next 😥
