I'm practically surrounded by people within my family including my father, who have severe drug addiction problems and the one thing that keeps haunting me is this idea, that they will never change and there is nothing I can do about it. I've tried, Intervention, Rehab, Counselling and any number of other things to try and make them understand that they have a problem, and it hurts more people than just themselves. Most of them have been in and out of jail, halfway houses probation, drug court just about everything that has to do with correcting behavior and becoming sober. Through all this, not one of them NOT ONE has after many years has become sober for any length of time longer than their jail sentence, or their drug court sentence or a couple of months of rehab and then they go right back to where they were, if not worse. I mean my dad has been addicted to all different type of illegal, and legal drugs for 18+ years. He lost his business, his house, his wife, his family everything he ever had is gone and it doesn't even seem to phase him, I tried so hard for so long and I'll I can think is that maybe the only answer is that they can't stop unless they want to help themselves and maybe even through any amount of clarity of how self destructive this all is, they just don't care. If any of you have been in a boat like this and somehow figured it all out, please give me some insight.
