I just found out that my daughter is doing cocaine. She is not giving any names up yet but believe me this conversation is far but over. My first goal is to get her professional help. Have I been so naive to realize the drug problem in our community? I am devastated, hurt and angry! She is my only child and my world. I am posting on here to see if other parents have had this situation and suggestions on what can be done.

Im so sorry to hear your story. I have been in your shoes with my childern at different times and different drugs of choice. She will probably not give up any names, think about who she runs around with. First and foremost GET THE PROFESSINOAL HELP!!! Your on the right track, nceling is a a very helpfull move also, you can do family as well as seperate, i do suggust both it is was very helpul within my family. PRAYER dont hurt either. God bless! This isnt alot but it is a start.

Get her into a good rehab asap. It may take several times to get her to stay clean of the drugs.

As a person who has been sober for 12 years, I'm afraid to tell you, she will not get help if she is not ready to fix her problem. Most people have to hit bottom or have something change in their live to make them wise up and take control. Good luck

Please be so careful and get her help asap. Cocaine isn't something she can go off of cold turkey it is a very dangerous drug, rock bottom for a teen may mean death. A lot of times cocaine users will experience sever senses' effects, such as hearing their blood flowing due to the lack of cocaine in their system. I'm sorry I know that hurts to hear but it is the truth. God have mercy on the person's soul who sold the drugs to your child. Please get the addict in rehab asap so they can take care of her. We will pray for you and your suffering family. Tell her someone out there is rooting for get to get well soon.

Well is she smoking it yet or shooting it up,she may also be on meth,as that's easyer to get.You might try geting her out of Doniphan as this place is over run with dope and dope heads that will drag her back in.

First, determine that it is actually cocaine she is using, and if it is meth. This distinction will prove to be a helpful factor in the recovery method which will most benefit your daughter and your family. Afterwards, if you eventually decide that you really seek to topple those whom are ultimately responsible for the presence of the cocaine or other drug which your daughter has succumbed and become indentured to, then you must seek assistance far outside of Ripley County and beyond the reach of those who view themselves as the upper-class and most prominent persons of the area. For it is a good cross-section of those individuals which have the greatest gain from the trafficking and trade of illegal substances in this area.

Rehab or not, the ONLY way you can get her off this, or any, drug is if SHE wants to. No amount of rehab will help if she likes it and will constantly go back to it. Lindsay Lohan is a prime example. She's been to rehab at least three times, but she likes it and won't get off the drug of choice (be it cocaine, booze, or whatever) until she really wants to, no matter how YOU feel.

Old warrior is correct she will stop only if she wants to. Forcing her to go to rehab when she isnt ready will make matters worse. The first thing that helps more than anything is relocating and cutting all ties she has to her friends. And if you can find a good reason to give her to quit. I am a recovering addict been sober for a year and its hard to quit cold turkey but its possible. If you can get her through the first three months or so it gets easier find out what her triggers are if she drinks a certain soda does certain activities ect... try to eliminate as much as possible the more of her friends and things she does when high that are in her life will make ot harder to quite. Sometimes parents can be enablers without knowing it im not saying you are. I feel bad that you are going through this talk to her when shes sober and ask her how she truly feels maybe she likes it or hates it but is to addicted to say no explain to her how ot makes you feel addicts have feelings too and its really hard to express them to someone who jasnt been through a high and so it helps to talk to someone whos recovered and been through those feelings of the first rush you get when ot enters your body. And most people chase the high because they want to feel the same rush as the first time but it never happens. I wish you and your daighter luck and im sorry for rambeling on so long
