Dealing with a drug abusing family member is not easy.

So when a Napa Valley set of parents found unprescribed Oxycontins in their son’s bedroom they were stuck with a dilemma.

The parents knew what they had to do.

They picked up the phone and called the authorities. They didn’t try to sweep the problem under the rug, or call it a “phase.”

They took action that could have saved their son’s life.

Their son now faces charges of possessing a controlled substance.

This had to have been one of the most difficult decisions a family could make. But the alternative was allowing their son, who is a legal adult but still living in their home, go on to a potential life of addiction.

This may be the last bit of authority these parents use on their son, but it just may have been the help that they need.
