My son is the middle child of three and I had to have him removed from our home environment due to alchol and drug abuse as i have a toddler in the home....He is drinking excessively taking drugs and constantly in trouble with the police he has had three short spells in prison. I am at my wits end with him..have tried everything possible to support him in and away fro family home. he is now homeless..his own doing,he did have a flat he was evicted he gets his benefits and within two days it is gone and coming to me for money for food. I have tried to be hard as i understand by providing im enabling..i told him no to money but he could come for meals he did nt and collapsed in street four days later..so i relented and gave him money ...he is now putting me in debt and im struggling with stress..Any advice would be really appreciated i just dont know what to do
