Today I had to tell my girlfriend that we can't keep taking care of her drug addicted dad because it is ruining out lives. We have a 90 day notice to move and I said I won't move to a new place if she is going to have him live there. Guess who is looking for a new roommate. FML

Can’t you call some hotline to help if you know someone who is suffering from addiction? Either way it’s illegal and if the dad is refusing help you gotta force him even if it means getting police involved

I’m really sorry this happened but I personally couldn’t see this going any other way. If my father was addicted to drugs and my boyfriend gave me such an ultimatum I would’ve done the exact same thing.

Really? If you were serious enough to live with your boyfriend, you would keep enabling a drug addicted parent to the point of making all fo your homeless and that still wouldn't be enough to force dad to deal with his demons? Enabling to that extent is going to killt he old man faster, not slower. As long as daughter keeps trying to hold his life together for him he has no need to get clean.

I’m sorry this is happening to you. By helping her father, your girlfriend is just enabling him to live this lifestyle. My sisters an addict and she only went into recovery once the ones close to her cut her off. It’s hard but the only way to help one!

Stick to your guns, OP. Hopefully she’ll realize you’re right and just trying to take care of yourself and her. I hope her dad gets the help he needs from professionals.

You're frustruation is completely justified. However if your family is not there to help you in a really bad part of your life who else will? So you have to understand her point of view, it's her father and atleast you know she's the type to be there for her loved ones when in need.
