Default Significant other with addiction issues

My girlfriend has struggled with addiction to drugs. She recently completed a rehabilitation progam and moved in with me shortly after that. When she was completely sober things were absolutely perfect. But a couple months ago she started smoking pot, then she started using other drugs. Tonight she moved out of the house to live with other drug users. She was cruel and refused to even look at me. What did I do wrong? I never abused her, I was always supportive, I put her first in everything.

What went wrong here? Has anyone ever experienced anything similar to this? Please, I just need to talk to someone.

You didn't do anything wrong. She has a battle to fight and it is hers. Though you may be able to help her with her battle if you two could seek counseling together and find out what to do, it's my opinion that the addiction issue is not yours at all. There may be some good books on how to be in a relationship with someone who struggles with addiction. I would advise you to seek counsel for yourself and/or a book on the topic, or look for some support website to see what you can find. I'm sorry she's gone back to her old ways. I can understand how that hurts because you want to take ownership for it somehow, even if only somewhat it feels like you failed somehow when someone does that.
