    Hi, so I've been trying to get clean for over a year now, and am currently at 48 days. Up until now, I have been going through this process virtually alone. I haven't told anyone about my problem, and I think that it would be helpful if I finally let my parents know. The problem is I am afraid that they will not be supportive, which is total bogus, but I still believe it. I need advice on how to tell them. They deserve to know. It will be better because I am on their health insurance and if they know I can finally get the help I need.

    This is the issue I have been struggling with, because I know I need help. I want help, but I really cannot get the help that I truly desire without the support of someone.

    roadtorecovery and ZebraLazuli, telling your parents is the greatest thing that you can do on this journey. No matter what you think, your parents will support you, and you will have accountability partners if you put them up to it. It will truly help you so much. It's pretty complicated to get over the fear of your confession, but just remember that your parents will always love you, always.

    I told my parents about it 2 years ago and they were very supportive. They still support me with my recovery. Go for it; they will surely provide care and support that us addicts desperately need. Having such care and support can have great healing effects. Good luck.

    Really not sure on this, is it a child-parent thing to disclose?
