i have done everything to get my son arrested but the more i think of it in which i may be wrong back in the day the court would help you put some one away in state hospital if they were like this why should sometimes i wish i could die i feel i failed in some way for him to do this to me ..a mother loves her childern and want to get help for him or her but the laws want to have them in jail that is not going to treat the problem it will just make him have a record. in jail that will cost the tax payers money years ago you could sign him in a hospital and they would keep him til he does get help. it is a sickness of some kind . my son then again i don't know i know one phone the drug dealer # cell numbers but they won't help.

some places it only takes 2 family members to sigh them in. but its not going to help if he don't want it! All you can realy do as a mother is PRAY PRAY PRAY!! Cut off all ties with him take out what ever restraning order you need to against him CUTT HIM OFF !!!!! let him MISS you!!! who have you tried to turn the dealer into? it doesn't matter if the dealer is locked up or not if your son wants drugs he will find them and get them. the don't have just one dealer. i will also pray for you and him. good luck!

the state hospitals will release a person within 72 hours. even the ones that truly need it.

they have been times when a deputy took a person the the state hospital and before the day is over they are back.

my hats off to any mother that worries about their kids, as a mother, I have learned to turn them over to god, he's the only one that can help him, you've done all you can do, you raised him, so after awhile you have to just accept the fact that you did the best you could...go to a quiet place and hit your knees and let it go let god handle it,trust me it works, I've turned my kids over to him and so far everything has gone o.k. Your kids can hurt you, in a lot of ways. Just have a peace of mind that you are his mom and you have to do what you can for him. Even if it hurts you or him.
I too will pray for you and your son. Please keep us posted, and remember god does things in his own time.

"The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor" (just some food for thought)
