My brother: From talented musician to homeless heroin addict

I am crying and having the most difficult time tonight. My sister lost her housing today due to substance abuse. She is schizo-affect, basically hears voices and has depression and anxiety. Unfortunately she is also a drug addict. My heart is pained as she was taken to the homeless shelter tonight. I have not heard from her, yet. I am afraid for her to be homeless, yet I feel so guilty that she can’t really live with me! I have children who would be deeply affected in negative ways. I was searching the internet for ideas and came across your site. Though I am in America, I am sorry and feel deeply saddened for our family members who are struggling. Don’t have answers or know what to do, just praying and extremely sad. What a great Valentines Day to remember. :(
