I suggest hiring a lawyer to modify the existing visitation order. This should be relatively easy given the father's past behavior and his drug issues. Find an experienced family law attorney to help you.
I am not intending this to be legal advice, because I don't know the particulars of your situation. Call me if you would like to discuss this or other isues.
You hire a lawyer to modify your existing order and put safeguards in place to protect your child. You should have your child in counseling. The father's rights may need to reduced to supervised visitation. It may be necessary for Dad to have some counseling or treatment as a condition of possession and access. Dad may need random drug testing. By not promptly filing a motion to modify, and instead by denying him visitation on his court ordered days, you are setting yourself up for being held in contempt of court for which you can be fined and jailed and ordered to pay his attorney's fees. You have to be proactive. You will get better results for your child without the risk of contempt.
This does not establish an attorney/client relationship
Both attorneys have given you sound counsel. Hire an attorney. You need to file a modification and let the court hear and consider what has happened since the lat time you were all there!
