She's going to treatment for 3 months! It'll be so weird at home without her and I'm going to miss her. But I'm a minor and I'm not allowed at the hospital to visit my grandma when she's sick because of that.

It's likely that you'll be able to visit your mother in treatment. However, it is possible that because you are a minor the treatment center will require you to be with a guardian.

Most treatment centers understand the importance of having family involved in the treatment process. That being said, every place is different. I would have an adult (your father or other guardian) call the place where your mother is getting treatment and find out their specific policy. I wish you, your mother, and your family well. God bless.

Regardless of what the next 3 months look like, remember that in the long run, your mom is making a healthy decision for herself and you as well. You might be able to engage in family therapy in treatment with her to revert the family responsibilities to where they should be. Your mom will hopefully be able to take care of you, your siblings and herself. I don't think you'll be expected to go 3 months without seeing her but no matter what the treatment program requires, it'll be worth it in the long run.Hang in there.
