    Hi I am a newbe!! My son went to Nottingham Uni for his first year and is coming home an addict! He will be staying with his mum/grandparents (we are divorced) He told me he has ADHD (self diagnosed) and that the various substances he is taking are helpilng him work out how his brain works! ( he has taken ectasy cocain acid ketermine ) he does not want me to tell his mum or grandparents, but I feel they have a right to know. I am fostering and have a placement so he can not stay with me. (he left to live with his mum at 13 while his brother stayed with me) despite severall deep e-mails he is wants to continue using and does not want any help! Can anyone offer any advise?

    Hi there and welcome to the board, although sorry you had to come here.

    I think this post would get a bigger response on the Parent Emeritus forum or Substance Abuse. This particular forum are for kids under eighteen. Once t hey are of legal age, the possibilities change.
