Please pray for my 21 year-old son, Spencer. He has come to us and told us that he has been doing heroin for over a year and needs help to stop. It has nearly broken my heart. He had used it previously, quit on his own and then after 5-6 months being clean, coincidentally ran into a person he used to buy from and was right back on it without our knowledge.
While the whole situation is both heart-breaking and scarier than anything I’ve ever had to face, at the same time, I know that God is here. I had suspicions that he was back on it but didn’t know what to do or if I was right. They are very good at hiding it or maybe I was just blind and scared to face it.
At any rate, my husband prayed about it for us to know for sure if he was back on it. This was Saturday. Sunday we let him take our van (supposedly to a friend’s house). It broke down in a part of town that you would go to for no other reason than drugs. That day I begged him to tell me what he was doing but he wouldn’t say. Thank God Spencer finally broke down Monday and admitted it to us that he is addicted. I know God broke my van so we could know the truth and get him help!
He is now two days into getting off of it here at home and suffering withdrawal although not as bad as I would have anticipated, once again, Thank God. He has an appointment Saturday for evaluation and referral to get professional help. We has no insurance so I’m hoping to get help through the County.
My husband and my son are just my entire life. I spent ten years as a single Mom and Spencer and I are soooo close. When he hurts, I hurt. Please pray for his recovery and for my husband and I to make the best, wise decisions and know the best way to help him. He is a good kid who made a bad/dangerous decision. This is a whole thing we know nothing about but we’re learning quickly.
Thank you so much.
