*NO BASHING* I found out my son tested positive for cocaine: What should I do?

I need advice! My 14 yr old son just tested + for coke. I knew he’s been smoking weed but now this. What should/can I do to get him on the right path?!

Scare his ass. Like have the police talk to him.

Rehab. Even being so young they will make his sober up and he will be surrounded by addicts that might make him uncomfortable.

Talk to his doctor right away. Figure out options and get a treatment plan in action.

Relocating can help to, you need to get him away from the “friends” he has now.

Also a talk therapist to figure out WHY he’s wanting to use.

Whoever he gets his weed off, could be weighing up both weed and coke on the same scales. I would ask and if not, rehab!

Approach your kid and get to know him, do not push or he’ll react defensively. Talk to a Dr and get him in a program, participate on as much as you can on those programs

I would speak to him and have him seek help! Forcing him into rehab will NOT fix the problem! A person can and will only change when they are ready!

Be real about it, ask him how it made him feel? And if it’s something he plans on doing again. And prepare yourself to dish out facts of drug abuse. Open communication

A lot of energy drinks and such can cause false positives on these tests, dont know if you’re aware of that

Uh get him into a rehab center ASAP. He’s 14. He doesn’t have a choice In the matter. And get the police involved, he’s getting it from someone.
