3rd day home from rehab. We had court yesterday. The judge is giving him one chance to prove that he is changing his life. He has two months to get a job, do well in school, follow the rules at home and follow the reccomendations of Rehab. If he does, he moves forward on probation. If he doesn't, he will go to detention. No joke this time. I pray that he will find it within himself to rise to the occassion, but it will be up to him. The rehab reccomendations include 3-4 AA meetings a week and a sponsor as well as family/indiv counseling through the in-home program. We'll see. He hates to be told what to do - even by a judge. He has been talking about AA, but I know he views it more as - he will go to meetings WHEN he wants, not on a schedule and won't work with a sponsor. That's a concern. His demeanor at home has been great. Much more connected. He is peaceful and respectful. We will give him this week to see how he does with getting job applications and going to AA meetings. I will not be forcing him to do anything - I am too tired of that and it doesn't work anyway. I will only have him "report" weekly to his probation officer on his progress and let her deal with him. If it's not enough - she can tell him. If it still does not inspire him - he can go to detention. Not my problem. I'm just too tired. He can either do what he is supposed to do and stay in our home, or not. If he goes back to using drugs either while he is on probation or after, he will also not be living in our home......too tired.
