Re: “Heroin Worship: Can Methadone Fix Vermont's Growing Drug Problem?

Nina, if you're reading this, what advice do you or your mother have for families of addicts when it comes to enabling? I know you say you can't push anyone toward changing, and I know this to be true, and I know your mother's stance on "tough love", but what realistic advice is there for families stuck between continuing to enable and trying to regain some sense of normalcy and financial stability, particularly when the addict isn't an only child, as you are? And particularly when the parents cannot possibly be blamed for anything, such as the abuse you experienced as a child? At what point should enabling be stopped when it is so clearly unhealthy for everyone involved and the addict isn't getting any better?
