Regroup and think about what has transpired.
Ask yourself how much do you love your family.....
If the answer is: "enough to want to see them safe and sound" then let me suggest this.
Go see her doctor ASAP and explain the situation to him.
See what options you have at that point.
If you can afford to care for the children,in the event that she is committed to a facility.
If you cannot,are there grandparents or other relatives that can take care of them?
It seems that she has symptoms of PTSD and is in crisis mode.
The fact that she stated the narcotics she currently uses have become ineffective should not be taken lightly.
Therein lies the possibility of her seeking something stronger and potentially more harmful to her well being.
In this family dynamic, it can only have a trickle down effect on you and the children.
Please stop enabling her;you may feel you are helping but it actually hinders her.
Notice that I used the first part of your username and not the last.
No time to dwell on what has already been done.
It's time to do what needs to be done;now.
