Q. What should one do when one suspects a Drug or Addiction problem?
A. If the person for whom you are concerned is a close friend or your child, you may try a gentle and kind approach with an offer of working the problem through with him (or her). Reference to a godly specialist in drugs may be sought but, if that specialist is not born again, we recommend you first seek the counsel of your local oversight. If the party is someone else’s child, or a member of your Church, speak to the parents or oversight respectively. Confidence must be maintained at all times otherwise hurt and withdrawal may result. This is an extremely sensitive issue which may end in suicide.
