Is there no help

I am Monica, 18.

Ever since I remember my mom's been on heroin, or tar. She was hooked on it so bad that we lost everthing we had. She left us homeless: we had to stay in hotels or outside. There were days we didn't eat cuz we had only enough money for her drugs; since I was 4 to the age of 16. But that's just because I left and moved in with my boyfriend. When I was 16 my mom went to jail because of drugs and went to rehab and got out, and 3 days after that she got hooked on it again and still is. She can't take care of herself. Becuase of everything she put me through I got hooked on heroin.

Because of my husband I got off of it; not only for me and my husband, but cause of my baby- I am pregnant now. I've been 4 months clean and still looking for help for my mom.
