If he is under age, get him some help now. Don't let him know, but have him tested for drugs, if he fails the drug test try and get a older police officer to talk to him, do drug test often without his knowledge,
im sorry

I am heart broken over the situation. It was a received message, his message said "how much" so I believe he has a problem. Coke is a bad drug; but conceivable, a person can recover from a coke addiction. I know heroin is bad around here, and I've heard recently that one of his friends uses heroin.
Any suggestions on addiction programs?

this is so sad to hear about u finding that on ur sons phone. How old is he if u don't mind me asking? Prestera on rt 60 where the old hotel used to be is a really good place they have a detox program then they have a long term residential treatment center there as well. Really nice ppl thrs work there. Good luck but please see that he gets help before it's too late; ppl r overdosing and dying every single day. My heart goes out to u.:)

Y'all are dreaming out over nothing. He's referring to marijuana, a drug less harmless than cigarettes. 80 is a usual price for half ounce of low grade 'weed'. If he is in middle/high school this is definitely the case. There is much worse out there, pills and alcohol, that's the really worry. But if you really don't want him to smoke, talk to him and you can purchase urine test kits at local pharmacies.

I am so to read this from a mom. It is sad that you have to find out this way about a serious problem that your son has. I hate to be the only one to say it but 80 for a half g he is most likely talking about heroin. If you found out a friend of his is using it then most likely he is too. I do agree with the others get him help before it gets to bad.

He is probably referring to heroin, since it seems to be the new "phase" of kids as young as 12! I recently had to go through the court system and get my 14 year old son into a juvenile drug rehab, not to be confused with a juvenile correctional facility. My son has been to both. The "lockups" don't address their drug problem, except by detoxing them. I truly feel sorry for you b/c I know how you are feeling. Please get him help NOW! If he's an adult, still don't give up on him. The drugs never will! The final bit of advice I can give you is probably the best... PRAY & HAVE FAITH that God will see you through this! May He comfort, advise, and be with you during this period of your familys life!
im sorry

Yeah it's definitely not weed. Whether it's coke or heroin is not the issue, he's on drugs. If his friend is on heroin, there's a good chance he is too. Depending on the age of your son, if he's under 18, confront him, take away resources like his money, his car, his phone, etc. Take him to a detox center right away, decide what to do from there. You should call rehab facilities while he's in detox since he'll be gone for at least 5 days. I would NOT suggest prestera!!! Their inpatient rehab is in a hotel near west pea ridge & they have free time where people can come pick them up & whatever. I know so many people that treat that place like a revolving door since it's so free. I don't know your financial situation but there are places out of town that cost the same as prestera & have a way higher success rate. Some insurances even pay for stays at out of state rehabs, they will recommend some to you but had might have to complete detox first. I suggest Bellefonte in Ashland for detox, it's totally closed off, visitors only in one room, you can't leave at all, you can't even go outside to smoke or anything. Sounds harsh but it's just for like a week & that's what he needs first. If he's 18 or over, you really just do the same thing, you can't make him go but let him know there will be grave consequences if he doesn't. You just have to be strong, not back down & let him tell you it's all ok because it's not. Don't let him overrule you because that's how a lot of kids today dominate their parents. YOU'RE THE PARENT & THE RULE MAKER!!

He's prolly meaning heroin , half g of heroin can go from 80 to 120 depending on how good it is and the dealer .. Coke ain't to hot right now around here ... Good luck and he's gotta have to want to quit to be able to stay 100% sober and clean .. If not it's gonna be really difficult to make him stay clean .. Best luck to you all !! If you ever have any questions feel free to ask (: I'll help the best I can ! I've been threw this also ..
