My son had issues with marijuana from 17 - 19 years old. He ended up dropping out of school (had a gpa of 3.2) and then about 7 months ago ended up in jail because he started stealing, etc. He will be coming home on Wednesday and has been drug free for 7 months. My question - is he an addict? Does he need to go thru a 12 step program?? I am letting him come back to the house to live however I cannot allow our life to get back to the h--- it was. Oh -- he doesn't feel he has a drug issue (in my opinion that's because it hasn't been readily available and he'll be re-entering society and probably seeing the same so-called friends)! Any suggestions for me??? Thanks!
