It did take alot of courage to turn her son in. The system is not set up to help people with drug problems in or out of jail. It is true if you need any kind of meds very likely your loved one will not get them. Some of the people in Cambridge jail have not been to court and my not go there for several weeks. That means some of the people in there a not guilty. If your loved one is in there and a fire breaks out they will be locked in while the rest of the building is cleared out.

For the people trying to get off of drugs the goverment has cut back on funding for them to go to rehabes,out patient clinics,detox centers also any kind of legal meds thru the clinics only special liciened medical personal can write a script. Trying to find counseling that might take their insurance if they have any.

We parents raise our children the best we can. Most of us work very hard to give them a good and decent life. We try to teach them right from wrong. When our kids go out we can only hope they will not be tempted to do drugs or drink or smoke or hang with gangs or bully others or torment other people because they are different.

I not better than anyone else maybe I understand a little more. My oldest son was born with spinabifada. My other 2 sons both have drug addictions. Both are working very hard to stay clean and sober. One son has had a lot of trouble finding the help he needs. There just is not enough help for them. They know to keep trying not to give up.

I give a big hug to her she will need her strenght to keep her head up high. I hope she and her son will both come out better for this.

You may want to have someone read you the story, you obviously didnt and cant. Its about a mother who turned in her son, not about her son and his problems....dah...go back to your crack den

Ms Beers, I applaud you on doing the right thing. I think you just saved your son, but he doesnt know it yet.
Good Luck
