My daughter told me last night she is addicted to cocaine and has been using it for the past month. She said she owes money to dealers.

She has confided in a teacher at school, who is apparently going to meet her at an cocaine anonymous group, with an excuse they bumped into each other. I know the teacher is trying to do her best, but it just feels wrong.

My daughter won't let me help, even if I just mention it, I am in the wrong. 
Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and troubling situation. If you're uncomfortable about the teacher lending help then maybe you could talk to the teacher. You are not in the wrong for wanting to help your daughter. Having an addiction is very difficult to deal with and there are a many number of reasons that she may not want your help, the best you can do is to be there for her and help in any way can or any way that she will let you. You can contact the FRANK helpline on 0300 1236600, they're an organisation that helps people on the issue of drugs.
