Our expert says:
Cocerned, it certainly sounds like she deserves counselling to help her free herself from the guilt that this addict son is trying to deflect onto her. I don't know of any support group specifically dealing with this precise need, but try calling Alanon, or even AA, to check on the availability of support for parents of substance abusers, reachable by her. Otherwise, at least a general counsellor could still help her a lot.
