My Step-Son's Drug Addiction
My step-son is an addict. He has been in detox and rehabs numerous times but always leaves before completion. He has stolen from me, my children and anyone else around him.
One day we come home from work to find our door had been broken in, the neighbor said that my step-son had been coming into our home while we were gone. We reported it to the police and he was jailed briefly but then released. I asked my husband not to let him into our home again because of this behavior but it continued when I wasn't home until I had to get a security camera.
My husband's mother who lives next door to us continues to let him live with her. She gives him money which he uses on drugs. He steals her money and medications but she continues to enable him and deny that he has a problem.
Family members have repeatedly explained to her that her enabling will keep him from getting the help he needs but she will not listen. They keep everything he does very hush-hush so he will go to family friends and talk bad about me and they don't know any different because my husband nor mother-in-law will not take up for me.
I'm tired of being the bad person when I have done nothing wrong. This has caused a wedge between me and my husband because he says I hate his son. I just want this so go away...
