steps toward rehab
My son has been in a rehab facility in East Chicago Indiana for almost 2 weeks now. My family and I visit on Saturdays and do family counseling. Then we get to visit with him. He looks good. But the words are still the same. "I'll never do it again" " I dont want to go back to that" "I have lost everything" but then he continues to blame other things and people for his problems. He is facing jail time when he leaves the facility in 18 days. He broke his probation too many times. He is giving me the guilt trip that I wont hire a lawyer, I couldnt if I wanted to, he has drained all my financial resources.He says prison will kill him. I think heroin will kill him. either way it is like a death in the family already. I know 2 weeks is not enough time to be thinking clearly and his words are still just words. I wish there was a button I could push and I would know when and if he is going to snap out of this addiction and get on with his life. But instead I just pray and pray and pray and lean on my friends and family to get me through each day.
