The One Thing You Must Do to Stop Enabling a Drug Abuser


 
Candice, 29, admits to using drugs on a regular basis but blames her mom, Constance, for giving her cash or driving her to her dealer to buy them. “I have used cocaine when I was younger, alcohol, Xanax, opiates, methamphetamine, heroin," she says. "I’ve used pretty much anything to escape my mother.”
 
Constance admits she enables her daughter but says she never knowingly gives her money for drugs. “Because of Candice’s drug use, I’ve had drug dealers show up at my home and demand money from me,” she says, adding that she has wanted to call the police, but Candice was too scared, so she didn't. “Drugs are controlling her life. I’m afraid she’s going to die.”
