I got to see her after almost 6 months. She had her counselor call for a visit yesterday. She was in jail for 90 days and is now in long term treatment 90 days and then a halfway house for 6 months as the consequences of violating her probation. I am the one that called her PO to tell her that she was using again. I am also the person that dragged her to see her PO fully knowing that she would be violated and would’t be going back to sober living. It was very hard to see her. She looks broken and beat down. The light in her eyes is just not there. It is hard to stay firm with her not being allowed home when you see them like this.

Yes it's very heart breaking to see them. I hope she starts to feel better being clean again. As hard as it is, you did the right thing to help her. Thinking of you

I have called the police.I have called the probation office. I did that to save my child's life.
It broke my heart to do it.
I hope that when the fog starts to lift from your daughters mind, that light will come back in her eyes.
I thought after 6 months my meth addicted daughter would be mentally better.Its been almost a year and more than a few relapses but she is slowly coming out of the haze.
