Question by Brian: Drug Addiction Help…?
My girlfriend is on Meth. I am trying my hardest to understand and comply with it. When I try to intervene and confront her, it becomes nothing but violent and pointless it seems like. She has been on it for approx 3 years now, and I had met her about a year ago. This is someone i really do care about because if i know how she is when she is not on it. I have seen her not on it and that is the person i feel in love with. She is very paranoid, and very insecure. She likes to say her friends are hers and not for me to meet, and everything just seems to be going downhill. How do I confront her and talk to her, or better yet, help her. Anytime i try to talk to her, it seems like she doesnt listen or just walks out on me. I do i get her to actually sit down and listen? This is a very serious issue i am having to deal with in a loved one. Someone please help me with some advice.
Rehab unfortunately is not an option right at the moment. I cant afford it and no health insurance does not help.

Does she have a counsellor you can discuss this with?
As far as relationships go, verbal, physcial abuse, alcoholism and drug use are usually “deal breakers”. People almost always have to hit rock bottom before they have a realization and seek help. Watching this is unbearably painful for the people who love them, but there’s nothing you can do unless they’re willing to make the choice to change.
We have the power to change ourselves, but not others.
The fact that she tries to separate you out from her friends is evidence that there’s something going on that she doesn’t want you to know about, so she’s trying to cover up her deceptiveness with a lame excuse. Ever hear the phrase: “attack is the best method of defense”. She figures that by getting angry and explosive with you, you’ll just back off. And it’s worked, hasn’t it?
It would probably be a good idea to tell her, “I love you, but… unless you’re willing to have an open, honest, loving relationship with me and include me in your life, I have to move on.”
This sounds like she’s getting whatever she wants from you. What are you getting out of this?
