>>I have been working with the Pacific Northwest tribes for a few years now. I know there is help out there, even for urban Indians who are not with their affiliated tribes. Is she Native American? I assumed she might be but you didn't exactly say. Meth will kill her as you probably are aware.
J.H.--She isn't acculturated with any tribe. Our roots to Iroquois are quite distant, but she is 'very' in love with her common law husband, a Mexican American. I can't be overly exact, but he's not monogamous. That is to say the mother of his children whom he seldom sees isn't of the mind to grant him a divorce.
I've ordered a couple copies of the book you cited. Thank you. Buying books seems to be my long term addiction. }:^) I'm sending one to my brother from another mother, out in Washington. The way I see it, it's going to take more than just isolation from 'enablers'. A 12-step program which doesn't have the biblical monogamous religious component might stand a better chance of success. (If I understand correctly that 12-steps do incorporate some faith accountability.) Though, these aren't atheists we're thinking about.
