Well my oldest who is bipolar/addict was recently sentenced for attempted burglary for trying to kick a local bar/liquor store door open after hours. He took a plea deal and was given 15 months plus time served. He sat in jail over 4 months because he couldn't make bail. He was given probation and released and made it 2 days before he was back in jail for using meth on probation. The good news is that his probation officer actually contacted me and listened to what I had to say. She kept him in jail and got him into residential treatment. He has been there for three weeks with another week to go. He seems to be doing well and we can see a glimmer of the person he was prior to the meth use. He is also on the correct medication for his bipolar and not self medicating and seems pretty stable. It feels a little like a miracle and I am cautiously optimistic. He told me Sunday during our visit that he is going to a half way house/sober living center when he gets released and has even worked it out to stay in treatment until a spot opens up for him. He is 35 years old and if you had told me in January that we would be here I don't think I would have believed it. Just wanted to share some positive news for a change.
