Matter of Life and Death

Dear Short Answers:
I am so afraid that my niece is into seriously heavy drugs but my sister (her mother) refuses to listen to me. Is there anything else I should be doing to try to help or do I just need to stay out of this horrible situation?
Scared Auntie

Dear Scared:
We think you should blow the whistle again. And again until somebody listens. Is there a dad around? An uncle? A teacher or clergy? Have you spoken to your niece to let her know you are on to her? If you are correct, inaction could be disasterous. Please understand that everyone’s first instinct is likely to be “shoot the messenger” but you have to decide how far you are prepared to go. Good luck.
