What can I do for my Family

My daughters Fiance was killed in an accident over 2 years now. It was devastating and it took me a LONG time to get over it. With therapy and some medications I have started to FINALLY feel better and try to move on with my life.

Now my Daughter is in horrible shape. She has gotten addicted to prescription pain killers. About 6 mos ago we had to take her to the hospital because I was scared that she had taken too many and wanted to get her checked. Also, 2 weeks ago I knew she was doing "something". I asked her and she said Vicodin.

We asked her to go to a therapist and she went for 2 weeks. We've called her dentist, her family doctor and a back doctor requesting that they not prescribe her anything more.

Our Family does not feel like a family anymore. I cry almost daily. The husband, who was always supported doesn't want to talk about it. My daughter doesn't talk to me because I know, just by her words, whether she's on something.

I left las Friday night I was so upset. Had my bags packed, but came back because my husband was furious.

At this stage in my life, I want some peace. Husband tells me to kick my Daughter out, but I just can't do it. I'd worry more about her. She hasn't saved any money to move into a place of her own and I have no idea where she would end up.

Can anybody help me?????

Re: What can I do for my Family

I'm sorry you are going through so much and I really feel for your daughter. Has she continued to see the therapist? If she won't go to a therapist, maybe you can go. There's only so much you can do to help someone unless they are an immediate danger to themselves or others. I wish I had some advice to give you. I will pray for your family.
