Hi Everyone: I posted a few weeks ago about my son found out he was using heroin. I went on our vacation and just got back and a message was left that we had our family counseling day today. My husband and I went and spent the day at the rehab center with counselors and my son. He looks good and seems like the child I once had. However he will be getting out next week and I am not sure how this is going to work out. He seems committed to staying clean except I do not see him giving up his friends. He also has not found his higher power which in talking with other parents at the rehab center is crucial to his recovery. They also put him on sleep medication and antidepressant which he is telling us is not helping him at all. The rehab center thinks he has anxiety and depression issues. He will be set up by the rehab center for outpatient care and he has to attend NA meetings and get a sponsor. He also wants to go back to school and try to take a couple of courses and make up the work 5 classes which I do not think he can do....told him to discuss with his adviser. He borrowed the money himself and the semester is paid for. He was told by the college that with a medical leave he can try to make up the classes. He does need something to do otherwise I am concerned he will be bored and use again. He really wanted to come home with us today but my insurance will pay until next week I told him he should stay. So my concerns are that he is going to get off his medications and if he returns to school once he gets stressed he will start using again. I also found out he has lied about so many things to us. All of the stuff he said he let his friend borrow had been sold for drugs. I do not know if I can take a relapse -I am stressing even before he gets home it has been so nice not worrying about him while he is in rehab. I admire all of you for dealing with your difficult children for so long not sure I can do it anymore. I would appreciate any advice or thoughts you may have.
