Good Evening Everyone. My son is in rehab for a 3rd time. He's battling the addiction of HEROIN. That word makes me SICK. Wish it wasn't a part of my vocabulary. Oh sure, he has used many other drugs while on a binge. For the first time he sounds as if he wants to seriously get and stay clean, however, as wonderful as that may sound in rehab, there is still the manipulation that lies beneath. My son will be discharged on June 21st and he is technically homeless. He has the option of going to a half way house, but is refusing. He is considering a 3/4 house, but does not have the means to pay for it. I don't think he wants to go to a half way house because there are rules that he will have to abide by. I truly believe this young man needs the structured environment to help with his recovery. He also has to deal with the local police for theft. No sure if his crimes will be considered a felony or a misdemeanor. I am not going to pay for a 3/4 house which means, he will have to find somewhere to stay or go into a half way house. I will not and his grandparents will not take him in. He tried to commit suicide and overdosed in his grandparent's bathroom. That is what got him into rehab. I will be going to see my son tomorrow during visiting hours in rehab with his younger brother. My goal is to remain strong. He needs the next step in the recovery process...a 1/2 way house to help keep him on the path to recovery period. This whole situation has taken the toll on our family. I'm so exhausted this evening. I really need to sign off and get some rest. Thank you for listening.
