The question I ask is, “Do parents make their kids use drugs?” The answer should be no because who’s really making anyone do anything; you would think? But this question isn’t intended for the family that wants to see their child flourish in recovery or to have never touched drugs or alcohol at all. This question is meant a little bit differently, because there are some parents out there who bribe and give their children extremely strong narcotics in return for getting out of the house, favors, and other mediocre things that could be done just by asking.
When I was in my early teens, right around the age of fifteen or so, I was hanging out with many people from the neighborhood I lived in still. Many of these people would either be in bands with me or be friends of those bandmates. It was a really nice neighborhood… from the outside. I remember there was a mother in my neighborhood that started giving her child her pill form methadone, OxyContin, and morphine, in exchange for him to drive to the store that would sell him booze.
I remember hanging out with this kid when I was a lot younger than fifteen. We basically grew up together and even attended each others birthday parties. You wouldn’t have guessed it from him at an early age, but he turned out to be one of the biggest OxyContin and methadone dealers in our high school. Who was his source though? That was his mother. And if him or his mother ever ran out of opiates she would just get more “supply” from one of her three boyfriends, or pay her son to go to another, older kid, from our high school that she directly knew and was abusing with, too.
She didn’t care where we used, she would let him bring pills to school and distribute them right in the hallways, or other times we would go on runs with her and she would crush pills up and snort them right on my car manual. One other place that was most common was right at her dinner table with her. So if you’re asking, “Does this parent really make their kid use drugs?” I would have to say yes; they do make them, or at least influence to the point of no return. Because when you’re grown up and socialized by this one person, whom is a single parent, and she is all you’ve ever known that when she asks you to do something it’s not a question of yes or no, it’s “Yes mam’,” and “When momma?”
Now on to mom number two…
Another local mom would let her children throw parties of 200-300 people and call herself the supervisor, when later I would hear the stories from the lead singer of my band that the mom and him were shooting up heroin in the basement before and after they would have sex, during these parties. He was only 18 at the time, so it wasn’t illegal for sex, but the heroin was being supplied and used at her house, by a pushing 45 to 50-year-old mother. The biggest letdown of the party was that her daughters were younger than me, and one was only 10 years old at the youngest, too. She would lock herself in her bedroom the first year or so, not showing that it bothered her until she would later start drinking mildly until it graduated and I stopped attending this house all together.
So to end, like I said, if these parents are your world and are all that you’ve ever known would you say that they make you use drugs? I would say yes, because disobedience in their eyes is a much worse sin. Saying no to a child’s vision of God would never go down right with the parents, leaving the children no other choice than to get involved with high grade opiates, eventually overdosing and relapsing and going to rehab many, many times. I don’t know where these children and parents are today, but I do remember that in my last Intensive Outpatient (IOP) I ran into the mother of the first son, only to be followed by the son. They’d gone to rehab together. Coming to one conclusion: Some parents make their kids use drugs…
