Hi I'm really upset I went in his room to put his clean clothes in there and I found a  I don't even knowhat you call it but I guess a pipe for smoking pot. I need advice how to get him help I DO NOT tolerate this and not going to.I tried to call drug hotline and they told me to get a test and see what that came out to be.and if he refuses then u know he's guilty.I just need advice on how to confront him without making a agrument out of it and he just turn and woutd walk away.I kno there needs tobe punishment I'm just up set about all of this.His dad and I are divorced I confronted him and  he told me he would rather see him to do pot than any of this other drugs that are out there.So I'm not getting any help from him.Please if you have any afor me advice for me feel free to post it one upset and hurt mom I raised him that any drugs are no good

If he's doing this at the influence of friends I would advise getting him into drug counseling even if it is just pot. Sometimes they need to hear the hard core truth without worry of hurting their feelings.

Definitely drug counseling. Hard core counseling. At his age he thinks he knows everything and knows more than u. Now is the time to not worry abt hurt feelings. Worry abt his life.

Tell him what you found and try and stay as calm, cool and collected as possible. Explain your concerns and why.

Oh no I am sorry, but first thing is his age if he is 18 it is a whole new ball game but under 18 you know what needs to be done. Good luck.

 go to the pharmacy buy a kit make him use it. If it comes back positive. Give him 2 choices. stop on his own or rehab.

Quoting bizzeemom2717:

I agree with this.

I agree with this. AND do random drug tests in about a month or so to see if he stopped. 

Also, he would be grounded for a long long time!
