I thought I'd check in as its been a little while since I posted about my son. He's been out of rehab for a week now. He ended up staying there nearly 90 days, which is longer than they typically keep kids at this particular facility. We were pleased about that. So far so good. We've only had one night where i seriously questioned if he were already using again. He was up half the night, restless. He had been at an AA meeting that night and claims to have had 5 cups of coffee. Not sure. Due to his past, it's so hard to believe anything he says. Years of lies have left us little trust in him, but we are trying. He's attending the recovery school that I've previously posted about and says he really likes it. There are just 12 kids attending, so it's small and helps the staff keep them accountable. There is an LDAC counselor available to the kids at all times and he meets with him regularly. The school drug tests the kids randomly, at least 1x a week. So far, there have been no calls about him failing! He turned 18 yesterday, so from here on out his consequences will be more severe. We won't be holding anything back and should paraphernalia or drugs be found in our home again, we will no longer be protecting him from prosecution. *sigh* I feel like weve come SOOO far in the last 4 months of this journey. I couldn't have done it without this group. There are still so many mixed emotions and worries for his future but I'm just taking it one step, one day at a time. That's all I can do. Right now he's getting ready to go off to an AA meeting and I'm struggling because I know he needs to be there but I'm concerned about the way he behaved after the last one. Time will tell... One question, I slept so well while he was in rehab. The day he came home, the sleepless nights returned. I can't help but toss and turn all night with worry. Does that ever go away?!?
