    We are in the next phase of detachment we can not enable our son any longer. We can not invest more in his recovery that he is willing to do himself.

    We have asked his support services to relocate him. We love him and can no longer allow him to reside in our home.

    I just read this Article on detachment and it is wonderful. Everything it states is so true and resonates. However, I just wish it would go a bit further and advise on steps to follow to actually "detach" appropriately. Any advice?

    I am new to detachment. That is a good article. I think I will have to read the article several times. It is so hard to digest what my son evolved into.
