[ Family ] Open Question : How to go about admitting substance abuse to my family?
Been having a huge problem with substance abuse the past few years. Its a medicene I'm prescripted and I've yet to go to the doctor and recieve a formal diagnosis of how bad it really is. I'm mainly concerned about how I should go about telling my family, i.e my parents, as their insurance would be the one I used to pay for any treatment. Also because its become a huge issue and costly to them as well as myself. Its the only thing holding me back from seeking help with my problem. My family is all that I care about in this world so I'm not sure how to tell them that i've bcome this monstorous person and that i've lied to them for years about what's really wrong with me. My family is kinda uptight, I mean like they dont curse or watch movies with alot of bad language or blood/violence. They're geniuninly good people and I fear they will reject me or disown me. Any advice?

Excerpt from Nineteen Seventy Something
I shut the door to the bedroom, then turned to face Greg.
"What the hell are you thinkin'? We don't need some drug addict living here! This ain't the animal shelter!"
Greg shook his head, "Rusty...Rusty...Rusty, you have been so sheltered all your life. Ricky isn't a drug addict! He's the star of the track team. Believe it or not, there are people that smoke a little pot now and then...people that YOU know!"
I glared at Greg, my mouth turned downward in a frown, "Where does this boy work? He has to pay his way!"
'Greg sighed and shook his head, "He doesn't work. He got tossed out of the house with nothing but the clothes he's wearing. Come on, Rusty, where's your sense of Christian duty?"
I thought it over for a few moments, "This ain't permanent...and if I say he goes, he goes!" I put my hand on the doorknob, "And he has to pay his way, one way or another."
