Treatment for My dear friends son

My son was once a healthy and beautiful kid. But as we know a lot of teenagers go down the wrong path. Drugs and alcohol being the main force behind that path. He went to the best school and had dreams, but things took a turn as he started experimenting with drugs. For my son's privacy I won't be displaying his name. He is still a teenager with many pressures, and I don't think he is mature enough to handle his friends knowing all the details about his current state. And I'm afraid this could set him off even deeper.

It first started with Marijuana, but as usual, gateway drugs lead to harder drugs. He started experimenting with party drugs like cocaine and ecstasy, but eventually found himself doing every hallucinogen he could get his hands on including Acid and DMT. He thought it was going to be fun but eventually followed a drug habit that stayed with him and became part of who he is.

A few weeks ago my son went to South America to get his head straight, clear his mind, and come back ready to turn his life around. I prayed this would be the end of this dark path but he didn't skip a beat and ended up abusing drugs once again while he was there. He met the wrong people and he was offered hard drugs that finally set him off. He has been in a drug-induced psychosis for the past 3 weeks. He hears voices, thinks people can hear his thoughts, is paranoid, and suicidal. He's not stable at all and cries out for help. As a mother, this has destroyed me and I feel helpless. I cry myself to sleep every night. I've tried everything to help my beautiful son get better but it's been really hard. I want my son to be an example to kids that drugs are no joke, and can take you through a very dark path. Which obviously can even lead to mental illness.

I'm trying all possible treatments to cure my son and get him back to a normal life. All the treatments are very expensive as you can imagine and at this point I have no choice but to reach out for help. This is a severe and critical situation that I just simply can't fight by myself. But I will not give up on my son. Anything will help, even the smallest donation. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Please pray for my son.
