If you’ve been addicted for quite some time, your children might have figured it out already. They might know something isn’t right in the house, or they saw you openly take drugs. Children aren’t as naive as we think they are, and it’s important to let them in with what you’re going through.
You know you’re sick, and the best thing for your kids is for you to get well. There can be so many questions you’re asking yourself right now… “Will social services take my children if they know I’m in treatment?” “How can I find someone to take care of my children?” “My children will be devastated… What will they think of me!?” It’s a big decision you’re making, but it’s one that makes total sense. You shouldn’t be thinking Maybe. You should be thinking I’m getting help. The time is now.
