Deperate Mom wanting to stop child’s addiction harm !!
Asking for 6000$
Breakdown to follow at end .
For starters please know that I have NEVER done anything like this before . But desperate times calls for desperate measures . I am and always have been one to figure things out on my own , especially when it comes to my children .
A little background
Growing up I had a decent life with my family (parents & brother). We had our own ups and downs through the years , but who doesn’t . In my teen yrs I made some not so great choices which led me down the path of becoming a young single parent of 2 amazing children . With the help of my parents I managed to raise my kids as best to my abilities . I don’t deny that we had some hardships but we always managed to pull through .
WHY I AM HERE
During my son’s last year of high school, him and his girlfriend became pregnant . I’m very proud to say they it out and both graduated with honours before they had the baby . With baby to arrive a few months later my son went straight from high school to working full time to provide a home for his family . No time for adjustment.
About 3.5 yrs ago I noticed my son was becoming more distant and extremely depressed . One night he confided in me he felt like a failure as person and as a father .
Not long after that he began using drugs . His drug of choice is unfortunately Meth . In the last 3yrs he has been attempting to get clean but hadn’t yet hit rock bottom so nothing seemed to work . He wasn’t completely ready and wanting to be sober .
About a week ago my son came to me in complete meltdown mode ,begging me to help him get the help he requires to have a clean and sober life again and to be able to be a part of his son’s life again .
I have found an out of province , private , addictions treatment facility but there is no way I can afford the cost of it , especially since I am only able to work part-time right now because of Covid 19 .
The total cost for treatment is 9000$
I have managed to get subsidized for half of the cost so 4500$
Total funds I Need help with is 6000$
Breakdown is :
4500$ for treatment
1000$ for travel (including family weekend )
500$ for misc costs
I really hope and pray that I will be able to do this for my son.
I will always be grateful for any help I can get and every little bit will be a blessing .
I will always try to pay it forward if it is within my means .
I would like to say Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story and I hope you can find it in your hearts to donate to my cause .
