Addicts and family

The addict wants nothing more than to be clean. Once they are addicted that is. An addicted mothers worst fear is to have their child taken away because the child becomes the only link to normalcy they have and reawakens a glimmer of hope that their life means more because of their child. A functioning addict will raise a family and go to work and no one will be the wiser.  My father was a functioning alcoholic and i didn’t know until he was on his death bed because of it. Sometimes the addict cannot cope but the drugs make life managable. Not much different from prescription meds but self medicating holds a far worse stigma. I do believe with all my heart that some children should be taken away from their parents if they are using infront of them or blowing money that is supposed to pay the bills. The truth is the child is just that. A child. They love their parents unconditionally and would rather be with them than without them. Its a slippery slope. Luckily there is a rehab around here women can go to where their children are allowed. And they get the opportunity to heal together. Just because the addict is addicted it will never outweigh the love for their child. Unless they are heartless, then call CPS
