Cindy, yesterday we found what turned out to be Cocaine in my daughter Sarah’s room. Now that I think of it, Sarah is suddenly very argumentative, barely sleeps, and is very anti-social. You should also know that her father and I separated 6 months ago, approximately when the changes occurred. What can I do?
Jennifer, it is clear that Sarah is having a difficult time with acclimating to the separation. She is acting out and avoiding her feelings by using Cocaine. The best course of action is a residential treatment program. Sarah’s Cocaine use be addressed through individual, group, and family therapy. Hang on, it only gets better from here.
