Welcome to Ask an Addict

AskanAddict.com is intended to provide addiction support and advice in a non-judgmental way so that the addict or anyone else that's been affected by an addict will know there are many who understand and eliminate the feeling of being alone. Ask an Addict knows it may be hard to talk with family and friends as many times they just don’t understand. Many have fractured those important relationships in life during active addiction. When it comes to seeking information, likeness, and establishing a strong recovery program who better to ask then someone who has been there! At Ask an Addict we listen and learn, together. Whether your an addict, a recovering addict or have been affected by an addict, we all have that common denominator of addiction.

If I had to use one word to describe our members, it would be the word compassion. (sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it)

Living with the addict
My AD daughter is a heroine addict and has struggled with opiate addiction for the past 10 years. She been in and out of many rehabs over the years, stayed clean for a while only to relapse again and again. She has even been incarcerated because of her addiction. She has lived with me during these years of addiction except for her rehab and jail stints. She has been going to school to be an addiction counselor. Ironically, she just relapsed again and is off chasing her high. We I question her, she denies it, even when I find paraphenelia in her room. I'm having a hard time dealing with this once again. I get angry and want to throw her out but can't. I've done it on several occasions but it didn't last. I became too anxious. I spoke with her counselor today, and she suggested that I not put her out. I know she brings drugs into my home. I've told her that if I find any more drugs she's out. Of course, I never follow through. My question: Do I let her stay my and set boundaries or do I put her out and then fear the worst of a bad situation. And if she stays how do I get the boundaries to stick. Thanks.
