Friends Heroin Troubles
    #3490839 - 12/13/04 01:45 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Well, i fucked things up pretty good this time.
My homeboy Has been struggling with Heroin lately. He was up to an everyday habit, and was trying to kick. I offered to help, by letting him stay with me while he did, but he couldn't because his parents were keeping a tight rain on him.(for smoking weed)
So i called, and told his sister, under the stipulation that she didn't say anything to his parents. (they aren't to helpful in these situations)
She was pretty upset, and apparently turned right around and told their parents.
I din't see that one coming, or i wouldn't have said anything.
So now, whats gonna happen, is their gonna try to send him to rehab. He won't go because he already spent over a year of his life in that place just for some weed, and alcohol. He won't go, so they will kick him out the house (he's not 18 just yet) Their relationship is gonna be irreversibly fucked up, as will mine and his.
This is a really bad situation, and i fear i may lose a good friend over it.

You think you're going to get this kid off heroin when he has been to treatment without any effect? You may as well just give him all your money now and tell him you can't be friends anymore, because that is what will most likely happen. I had a friend who was an serious opiate addict and I bascially let him live with me for a few months and took care of him, to try and help him out. Ended up stealing from me, lying to me and everyone else about his usage, and now he's a year into the methadone program with zero friends left because he burned all his bridges.

If he's under 18 with a heroin problem, maybe rehab is the best place for him, ya think? Sure its not going to work for weed and alcohol, but really, who the fuck goes to rehab for a pot habit anyway? If he really wants to quit, he should just bite the bullet and GO. This is what rehab/detox is for.

Also, you shouldn't feel responsible for "fucking up" his life. Its not your fault that his sister is a tattletail. You did the responsible thing and told someone who can actually try to get him some real help instead of some half-assed "come stay at my apartment" deal.

I know, its a really fucked up situation.
His parents knowing about it was not what i wanted to happen, because i can see how that will play out, and its not going to help anything.
He lost Over a year of his life locked up in rehab, before he even had a problem with drugs, so i can understand him not wanting to go back.

He managed to maintain a Heroin addiction for quite some time without anybody knowing (that he didn't tell), and still had lots of money left over.

I don't know wher i'm going with this... I just want my friend back, but mabey me narcing on him was for the better.

That very well might of been the only way to get him off of it. Dont feel guilty for what you did. It was definently not a good thing to do but maybe in a year he will thank you for it.

You did not Narc on him. You love him and did what you thought was right. His sister is not a tattletale she also loves him.

If you are truly his freind you will pressure him into rehab. You don't let him move in. What ever you have to do. Do not give up and stop talking to him. Even if he is pissed do what ever it takes to keep the freindship going. It takes 2 people to burn a bridge. No person is Trash and to be givin up on. LOVE HIM and TALK TO HIM.Talk to his family tell them that you will help in any way. GET THIS OUT IN THE OPEN RIGHT AWAY :thumbup:

Be his friend even if he steals from you for drugs. That is what a freind does he accepts his freind despite all his faults. A friend moves forward and forgivess all the past. If you show him that in fact you love him he may start to love himself. His parents should not throw him out they should do what ever it takes to get him into a rehab.

Herion addiction is a very nasty thing to deal with. BUT IT MUST BE DEALT WITH now. The thing the family and freinds must understand that it is just as hard on them as it is on him to quit.

A lack of love is why many people turn to the high of herion. Herion users need LOVE

Everything turned out alright. He's not getting kicked out, or going to rehab.
He's still trying to kick.
He came over today and said he respected me more for telling his sister
