I got a call from the director of the halfway house. It turns out that difficult child lied about everything. I don't even know where to start. She told me about a big party at the halfway house where she got caught with pot and drinking. It turned out that the director had been watching her carefully this week after my phone call last week and the events of Tuesday night (more on that later). He caught her alone in her room Friday night and there was an obvious stench of alcohol. He used that breathalizer and she blew a .32. That's when he told her that she had to leave. He later found out from others that she had been drinking all along. Now for the worse news . . . she had told me this morning that she had rear-ended someone on Tuesday but didn't do any damage to the other person but the hood on her car got bent. husband questioned on her story and she told him that they didn't even exchange insurance numbers because there was no damage to the truck she had rear-ended. Well, the director told me the real story. Remember the heroin addict from a few months ago that difficult child supposedly stopped hanging around with when she found out he was using? Well, he is back in town and difficult child is hanging around with him again. He was driving her car when the accident happened and it was a hit and run. The other person chased them and supposedly rear-ended her car. I dont'see any damage, though. So there is a possibility that there could be a warrant for the owner of difficult child's car . . . her. The director read me texts back and forth from difficult child when it happened and he told her to go to the police and tell them what happened. He said she is willing to take the fall for this guy. When I walked in the door after talking to the director, I asked difficult child if she wanted to change her story and she immediately fessed up that the guy was driving. When I asked why she hadn't told the police, she said she didn't want him to go to jail because he was a "good person" that has a problem. So she has been drinking and doing who knows else during this whole time and is now hanging around with a heroin addict. The director told me that if she keeps hanging around with him it is just a matter of time until she starts using heroin. He said he didn't think she was using it yet. He also said he thinks she needs detox and then another rehab stay and that she was in denial. I asked him what we should do and he said to let her fall. He said we needed to stop helping her and coming to her rescue. I know that he is right. I told her to find somewhere ASAP and that she is on her own now.
