We are going to take whatever action we can. I am calling The National Alliance for Mental Illness tomorrow and will follow their instructions on what to do for a missing person under 21 who has mental illness. I have the non-emergency number for the CO Springs Police Dept. and Missing and Exploited Children in my phone (MEC will take cases if the person is between 18-20 and has a mental illness). I am also calling a local Narcotics or Alcoholics Anonymous group tomorrow to see if they have support groups for parents.

I cannot thank all of you enough for your CONSTANT encouragement, support, positive thoughts and prayers!

Nancy

Nancy, it's so hard. I'm glad that you have support and are finding more.

Try Familes Anonymous, which is a 12-step support group for family members of people affected by substance abuse. https://www.familiesanonymous.org/

There is a directory online of meeting sites. There are even several online meetings.

I am so very sorry, Nancy. I cannot imagine what you are going through.

Is your DD missing? The last post I read was that you had found her.

My heart breaks for what you and your family are going through.

Sending prayers for all of you.
