My son, 16, has been instant messaging his friends on-line (we have access to his IM's) that he is very depressed. Four days from now he will be entering rehab and is extremely upset about it. He doesn't want to lose touch with his friends because he will not be allowed to communicate with them at all while in there. He told his friends that he is so depressed that he is contemplating suicide. I understand you are supposed to take any threat seriously but I don't know what to do. He will not admit it to us that he's depressed. I know he won't. I just don't know if this depression is a temporary thing coming off a drug and then it goes away. Many of you probably don't know the answer to this because this is not the drug site, but I thought if any of you have tried drugs and found yourself depressed coming off a drug ...if it's short lived or does it last for a long time?
