All I can say is try to have empathy. It’s difficult for me most days. Frustrating to see your extremely smart and athletically gifted child on the street. Addiction is an illness. And yet there’s no medicine to cure it. The addict will battle their demons all their life. Family, friends, society, and the addict will all suffer.
