I posted last over a year ago, when my son(now 24) was asked to leave his university for heavy drinking and bizarre behavior. Since then, the drinking, depression, and inapproriate behavior has continued. He has good weeks and bad weeks, but the drinking has accellerated. He is taking Wellbutrin, which has helped him more than any other antidepressant, but he continues to drink despite the warning he was given not to drink with this medication. Two weeks ago, he chose to leave rather than seek help for his alcoholism. I was absolutely devastated, but I knew that we had to do this, even though it was very difficult. Well, he was back two days later, and agreed to enter oupatieint rehab. He had an evaluation but did not follow through in starting the program. We had another altercation about his drinking (impaired again) and we told him inpatient rehab or leave. He agreed to go if i would buy him a pack of cigarettes (that was easy!) Called the in network rehab. Intake advisor stated he did not meet criteria for insurance coverage as there was no documented history of blackouts, DUI's or other legal trouble, and has not yet been to outpatient rehab. Yesterday we came home to find him under the influence. He was very agitated and irrational and was yelling at his father, accusing him of not following through on some promise that he had allegedly made. He is now in the hospital in the detox unit. Blood Alchohol level 243, was told this is three times the legal limit. Spoke to psychiatric doctor and social worker. They are going to work on justifying his admission to the inpatient rehab. Outpatient rehab will be a waste of time and money for him. I know he will be late, and miss days, and drink on the sly. His friends will be around. He can't stand my husband (his father) and clashes with him frequently. My husband and I are TIRED of this. I can't believe I've gotten to the state that I'm in...I am calm and collected and just a little bit teary sometimes. A couple of weeks ago I was a basket case, but now i am calm, cool, and collected. I guess i've learned to detach. If anyone has any experience with admission to inpatient rehab, I would like to hear about it.
