Exclamation A friend on drugs.. - December 1st 2011, 04:53 PM

So here's the issue..
Last week a friend told me of a very serious problem.
Friend said that two girls in my year at school (one who used to by my best friend and the other who is an acquaintance) have been snorting cocaine in the girls toilets during school hours. Not only is it illegal to take drugs anyway, but in school and at age 15/16 is a MASSIVE step over the line.

Of course to me, it sounded like a total rumour however when my friend explained her evidence, it became clear it was not a lie.
The girl taking drugs who I was close with (we'll call her Kim) has had several mental health problems in the past and comes from a broken home, often self-harms and has a past of taking class A drugs.
The friend told me she'd seen Kim and her mate in the toilets, laughing and acting really strangely, Kim then said "Can you see any of the white stuff up my nose?" and was apparently 'high as a quite' throughout her next lesson.

What comes next is worse. A boy (we'll called him Jon) backed up friend and said that Kim had shown him 30mg of m-kat in her back along with a stash of cocaine. Jon said Kim had told him in order to hide the drugs she placed them inside her vagina.

It was very difficult for me being put in the position of knowing exactly what was going on and not doing anything about it so I asked friend and Jon to confess to a teacher confidentially about everything they knew. I went with them to give a statement, as I felt that if we didn't say or do anything about the situation, Kim and her friends lives were in serious danger.

Anyway, Kim had found out somehow that friend had written the statement and is acting very abusive towards her and claims 'it's all bullsh*t'.. something I find very hard to believe, but Kim is a VERY manipulative and convincing liar.

I feel very sorry for friend as she has all the blame, when really it was my fault for encourage her and Jon to own up. I don't know what to do because the drug taking is still going on as more of my friends have witnessed it.

HELP!

Unfortunatly you have a choice to make. The choice is do you wan to stand by and leave it alone, or do you want to get involve (risking the friendship) and try to get your friend some help?

Thats a question that only you can answer.

I have faith that you will pick risking the friendship to help a friend, and If im right then you have to go to drastic measures to make sure that your friend can get the help that she needs. I would go to an Administrator (principal, asst principal, dean, etc. NOT A TEACHER). Why jump so far ahead? because if you try to talk to her, she will only get upset and angry and that will only get you so far... um to like no where.I digress. Anyway, go to a adminsitrator and tell them that you are concerned and that you want her to get help (and tell her all other details). Tell them you want to remain anmounious (and they will almost always keep it that way). Then let them do their job. She may hate you, but in the longrun, if she gets help she will be thankful alot later in life.

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

Hi Rosie, as Chris said you have a choice to make. From your post it doesn't sound like you are still friends with Kim, but that you used to be best friends. Her lying, manipulativeness and abusive behavior are most likely due to the drugs assuming that she is in fact using them. It is NOT your fault that your friend got Kim in trouble, that person could've decided not to tell although the three of you made the right decision by telling a teacher. Kim is going to have a negative reaction. If it were me I'd back up your friend and remember why you told on Kim in the first place. Separate yourselves from Kim as much as possible because you don't need the stress of dealing with this and let someone know how Kim is reacting to see if something can be done.
