hello , I am a mother of a 28 year old son who is a heroin addict. He hit his bottom last month. He is now in a rehab in Michigan, far, far away from California where we live and where his drug addicted friends are . He did so well the first few weeks , gained 10 lbs and was so happy being sober . However the last week he has been calling and saying he needs a break . He wants a one week break and then wants to go back, but It doesn't work like that .
My son has NO insurance so we paid 30,000 for him to go 90 days.i don't get it , why is he doing this ? He says it's not because he wants to use. He says he just needs a break from the food, the classes etc.... I am at my wits end with him , he is a grown man and he can do what he wants but if he leaves he can't go back which means he's out and I'm out 20 grand and then need to worry about him ?
Since he has been in rehab I have had the best sleep I've had in the past 10 years . I am starting to get anxiety and sleepless nights again . I can't wrap my head his need to leave the center . What to do? he won't even call me cause he knows I am not okay with that idea. Instead he calls his girl friend and whines to her . Any suggestions from this group would be helpful .
I have joined this group because our six year old son has been diagnosed with odd. We have been doing therapy for a little while now. I believe it is called PTIC. It seems to be helping behaviors at home however school is a real challenge for all involved. Any suggestions?
My husband and I have been married 12 years this June. We have had our ups and downs throughout our relationship. I have kicked him out in the past (never lasting longer than a week) and let him come back. Things get better for awhile then get back to the same. I have known about his occasional marijuana use and prescription drug abuse in the past. He went through a period of alcohol dependency...
