My Husband Is A Crystal Meth Addict

I have been with my husband for 18yrs now. Since I was 15 and he was 17. We have 3children together. We had recently opened our own business, a little car and truck accessory shop about a little over a year and a half ago. Everything was going pretty good. Then he started not coming home. It would be 7 or 8am. He would come home shower and leave again to do It all over. He began to lose weight, miss kids birthdays. Says he was working and it was a killer being a one man show. I believed him and tried to help him. He was using behind my back. I didn't find out until one night he called me and had been arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance. That's when it all made sense. That very morning I received eviction papers. I was losing my house because he hadnt been paying the bill. He had been buying crystal. I left and moved in with my mother until I could get another place. We have spent well over $5000 in legal fees from this and he still won't come home, hasn't gained any weight, and i believe still heavily using. He won't do it at home so he just doesn't come home. I don't know what to do with him. He has court on Monday so maybe we can push for rehab. He won't survive probation might as well just throw him in jail then. All I want for Christmas is for him to get cleaned up. Please, Santa I promise I have ben a good girl.

Is it wrong that I wish my husband would get busted? Maybe then he'd agree to inpatient rehab. :/
