Abuse because of herion! - April 17th 2012, 09:27 PM

My best friend is dating a guy that is on herion. He is very abusive to her. He beats her up all the time. I keep try to tell her to get herself out of that relationship but she just won't listen. She breaks up with him and moves home but in less that a week she is back with him. I am very worried about her but I don't know how to help her. I am scared she might try herion because he is very forceful. I am scared that she will get hurt really bad. I don't know what to do.

Melanie, unfortunately, there's not much more you can do here, you've told her straight out what you see and what you think, and it's up to her to accept that. Sadly, she can't. Unless you have info that she is being assaulted, or that drugs are in plain sight (allowing you to call the police), people are tragically allowed to make awful choices.

maybe with time, she'll come to accept what you've said, and surely you shouldn't miss the opportunity to repeat yourself and see if she can't at least tell you why she's dran like a moth to the flame here. But, it has to come from her, paradoxically, it's best to let her do more of the talking, rather than you doing it in the hopes it'll get thru.
