Our expert says:
Firstly, your daughter did not become addicted because she was in an abusive marriage, it's simply because she's an addict.
Addicts and alcoholics will think of any excuse possible to rationalise their using. In addition, why are you writing in about your daughter?
I don't mean this in a nasty way, but why isn't she writing in? You see, I mesntion this because this often happens.
The mothers try and do their children's recovery for them. If your daughter is so really worried about her addiction, SHE should be writing in, not you.
The problem with most addicts is that they really aren't interested in stopping and they'll manipulate everybody around them to do the hard work.
I'm not saying that this is the case with your daughter, I'm simply talking from experience. Please don't do your daughter's recovery for her, let her do it herself.
She knew how to get hold of the drugs, the foil and how to smoke the drugs. Surely she knows how to write a letter to ask the questions you have asked?
If she lets me know where she is, as in which city, I might be able to direct her to a state sponsored rehab. Please don't do this for her, she must do this herself.
What happens after rehab? I think you should join Naranon ASAP, an organisation for family and friends of addicts.
What will happen to your daughter? Well, that I can tell her when she takes the trouble to ask me herself.
