    This is good news. I'm glad your husband is helping-it really is nice to have another person to rely on. I hope that your difficult child find peace and support and will turn a corner. You take care of yourself. (((Hugs)))

    (((((HUGS))))) I still remember the day that our difficult child agreed to go into treatment like it was yesterday. It is burned into my memory because it is the first day I felt there was hope. I will keep you an dhim in my prayers. This will be a long and difficult road but one that can have a very happy ending.

    Please let us know how it's going. Many of us have been there and we are here to help you through it.

    Finally going to rehab was a huge step for my difficult child. It was the first time she admitted that she had a substance abuse problem. You can't get better until you admit to a problem.

    I think it is wonderful that your difficult child has taken that first step.
