We knew our son had a struggle with alcohol but it's become evident that he's been using cocaine and other drugs since his mid teens. He wants to get clean and is now without a job. As his parents, we will always love, help and support him , and so will his partner, she has been amazing. Our son is 27 now and recently he was pressurized , by a dealer,to pay a considerable sum of money - owed for cocaine.He no longer has access to cash, being overdrawn, and his partner having taken his bank card, so he asked us to give him this sum of money on the pretext of a mistaken withdrawal from a business account he has. We did this to get him out of the clutches of this dealer, making sure that his partner paid the dealer and took our son home. He has made an appointment with a drug & alcohol counselor for later this month. Our son is a university graduate and We will remain hopeful that he'll come out of this terrible addiction
