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 ?

I've tried talking to a few people on here today and it seemed like no one was really in the mood to pm with me. Which is totally fine. I'm not judging. It would just mean a lot to me if anyone had the time and generosity to talk to me a little bit. I don't know why, but I've been having...
My husband had primary physical custody of his children before he married me. The NPD with ASPD tendencies ex had left while 2 months pregnant with the youngest, more than 2 years before my husband ever met me. She had long since remarried. Once I came into the picture, she took the kids, refused my husband visitation.....the normal parental alienation thing. But it took us several years to...
