Addiction and Substance Abuse
My daughter I have found some heroin in her room and when i asked her about it she said that was her stash to comit suicide my question is this how much will hurt her or kill her I have tried to take it away but she gets voilent she is a non user of heroin but does smoke alot of weed what should i do
I consider this an emergency situation and your daughter needs to be seen as soon as possible. I don't know your daughter's age or where you live, so I can't suggest where you should take her, but an Emergency Room would be appropriate.
