Our expert says:
Thank you for your post.
I strongly suggest contacting a family support group, for example Nar-Anon. They are a free Twelve Step fellowship of men and women who have a similar experience to you. If you visit their website http://www.naranon.org.za/meetings you will be able to find where your nearest meeting takes place. Additionally I would suggest some therapy to help you with the anxiety that you experience over your son's drug use and the fear that he will be like his father.
Should you decide that your son does have an drug problem we can certainly treat him here at Harmony for his chemical dependency. Our programme would also include trauma therapy around the abandonment of his father.
I hope that this helps, however if you need to chat more please feel free to call me on 021 790 7779.
Wishing you the warmest of regards
Love & Light
