Our expert says:
This is a particularly difficult stage for someone in her situation, as she is losing her crutch ( it only made her problems worse, but at least hid them from her ) and hasn't yet developed healthier alternatives to deal with whatever is distressing her. Be clear to her that you all love her, and only intervened because you love her. Should she walk out on the program, though you may choose to make it clear that you won't allow her back in the home IF she continues to abuse the drugs, make it very clear that you will continue to love her and will help support her into and through further therapy to find a safe and healthy way out of the dead-end she had entered before.
