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 .

When the ones that seem to have it the...
I am a 58 yr old widow raising 2 granddaughters. I met a man 4 years ago, he moved into my home 2 years ago. I wanted to get engaged to show a committment because I was raising teenagers. We got engaged. I told him at that time, I didn't think I wanted to marry again and he was fine with that. After living together a year, I made the comment that "I couldn't believe him when he said he...
