Posted under Alcohol, Drug Rehab, Intervention

I recently read an article about a mother whose daughter died from an overdose of painkillers. Mom knew her daughter was an addict – and had been for years – but at the time of her death she was already 29 and long past the age where her mother could force her to get addiction help.

Now there is a law in her home State – which she pushed through – allowing family members to more or less commit their family to a full drug rehab.
