Tuesday March 6
Learned that my son's nursing clinical was cancelled and he had to report to the school at 9:30 a.m. His car can't be driven so we have to drive him.
My husband dropped him off at the school. The meeting lasted 1/2 hour and my son was terminated from the program. We then learned that he had been drug tested by the school (not the first time) after falling asleep in class. My son altered the time on the report by 2 minutes. The test result was clean but because the report had been altered he was terminated. My son claimed that he did not try to hide the change that the time was wrong and he walked right into the facility as instructed, changed the paper there to show the right time and submitted to the test. I insisted that he and his father immediately go back to the drug testing facility and have my son retested with both urinalysis and blood test so that he would have this information for appeal. He refused. I insisted and told him that he would not be welcome in our home without this proof of innocense. He agreed. While waiting for the test to be administered my son admitted to drug use.
That evening he admitted to having been using drugs for over 1 year. Prior to his grandmother's death in October of 2011 he had been using oxycodone very heavily for about 3 months. After her death he did not use as much, but still used. He admitted to being in debt to a drug dealer and to relapse and use within the last 2 weeks. He was very afraid and very repentant at this time. He continued to volunteer information and saught to develop several plans to turn himself around.
Day 2 March 7th
Behavior remained compliant. He acted like his old self again and it seemed like a burden had been lifted from him. Later in the day I think he began to experience withdrawl symptoms. He had to go to the bathroom a lot and his nose was runny
Day 3 March 8
Behavior remained compliant except for he slept most of the day. He applied for full time consideration at his job and did everything requested of him. He went on a walk with me and answered many questions I posed to him including how much he actually spent on drugs, how he got them and how much he took. He was cold and not in a very good mood later in the evening and went to bed early.
Day 4 March 9
He slept for nearly 10 hours, woke up briefly, then went back to bed for most of the day. We woke him and he spent some time with us and seemed to be in fairly good spirits.
Day 5 March 10
He was scheduled for work at 9:00. My husband woke him up at 7:30 so that he could take his time getting ready. He refused to get out of bed. My husband forced him out of bed at 7:45 and asked him to shower. My son was not in a good mood and argued for nearly 15 minutes over how stupid it was to get up more than 1 hour before he had to leave.
Later in the day he called me and asked if he could go somewhere after work. supposedly one of his friends, a recovering addict for some time, offered to talk about her experience and she gets off work at 11:00 p.m. and he wants to talk to her at her house.
This is against the rules we set and he continues to fight. We are concerned.
