A sibling of mine has or had a major addition to percocet. She lied about taking it during her pregnancy but after the child was born it was found in her and the child's system. Department of Children and Families placed her on a sort of probation in agreement our mother. She was to be randomly drug tested every week, however, they often did not follow through. For a short time, she did seem to be clean and genuinely trying to turn her life around. When I asked about her conscience about taking drugs during her pregnancy, she explained she was not in a state of mind where she was thinking clearly and also if she had stopped, the withdrawal could have harmed baby even more. She also told me the right thing to do would have been to tell the doctor and be weaned off the drugs, but again she was in no right mind. I admit I am slightly skeptical of much of what she says but I am trying to be supportive. It has been nearly a year now and I think she has been back on some sort of substance. She came to visit me a few times and was five hours late from the time she said she was on her way, and showed up with very glossy eyes. I am too afraid to confront her because I don't want her to think that no one is on her side. Our mother is under the impression that she is back on drugs and has requested DCF to come for a random drug test but no one will get back to her. I don't have a lot of experience with addicts and I would like to help her the best way I can. She has two children that also factor into the situation. All suggestions welcome.
