How Can I Get Help With a Family With Drug Addiction and Mental Illness Combined Thats in Denial?

Question by Daphne W: How can I get help with a family with drug addiction and mental illness combined thats in denial?
I’ve been using some form of drug all my life. I’ve always wanted to stop, but I’ve been scared of facing reality alone. No one around me was making a move to get out that life so I waited and still used. During this time, I have neglected giving my full self to my children, neglected important activities and neglected myself.
It’s been 5 years and me and my boyfriend have been battling drug addiction together and mental illness. I got so depressed that I was searching for help in the T.V. and newspaper. I became delusional and wanted help so bad that I convinced myself that someone out there in the world had been hearing my cry for help. As I got weaker, fighting my addiction and mental illness, I then thought someone was coming to kill me. After my stay at the hospital my mind got stronger. I’ve used since then. I’ve left my boyfriend. I made a move on helping my family, but my partner is in denial. He resents me for making a stand. I Love him and can’t help him. I stay depressed.

    1st – You need to want it bad, worse then the drugs.

    Second Make a decision for the sake of your kids and give them away either to family or fostercare

    go to the shrink every week and take your meds
    you are never gonna be well , you’ll always need them.

    Second get off the drugs, just stop and move to a new town start anew life.

    but try, for your kids, for yourself.


    try try again

    just try

    if a person is in denial all you can do is be there for them should they decide that they are ready to change and pray for them that they will be okay get some books on being an al-anon but please dont nag at them sometimes this just makes them rebel and use more until a person is ready to change for themselves it is not going to happen they can be locked up or go through the motions of being clean but if they are not sincere about it they will go right back out and do it again i am a recovered alcoholic of 7+ yrs and you just have to hope that they see the light i will pray for you good luck and be as patient as you can
