    So difficult child is thinking about tx again....we shall see. The ball is in his court. I am not jumping thru hoops this time...and only places that take insurance directly?.we are not forking out big bucks.

    But keeping my fingers crossed.

    I don't know if he will do it for the right reasons but I realized what a relief it will be to me for him to be off the streets! I look forward to sleeping better!

    Yep. I get the relief part. I hate that my son's choices landed him in juvie, but I sleep really well knowing he is being taken care of. I am free to do things that I could not do when he was home.

    Well...he may rethink it...they are now opening up a club in Denver to smoke. Club 64. Now he can just go spend his time inside the club and not be cold! Just kidding. I dont think they have figured out where this club is going to have a location. It may be a traveling club. Now that should be interesting.

    Lol....bet it won't be open all night to sleep though! From what he writes on fb I think he wants to get off the street...seems to be spending a lot of time at Starbucks!

    Isnt that what they do after a night of smoking? Smoke, eat and then sleep! BYOPot,munchies and sleeping bag...lol.

    Supposedly they had a New Years Eve party. Very mellow and happy time had by all!

    A little update... my difficult child got his ID. Yay... and then of course posted on face book that his first purchase being of age was a bottle of jack daniels. Ick.... at least he bought it although how he got the money I dont want to know.

    But he did say today he wanted to go treatment and would we be willing to get him a bus ticket??? So he is getting slightly less entitled because he didnt ask for a plane ticket. LOL.

    So we shall see if he gets himself to treatment... and yes I told him we would get him a bus ticket and no I did not offer a plane ticket.

    Hello, battlefatigue. Yes, I can see your post. Welcome to the CD board. Could you tell us a little more of your story? Many of us on the SA forum have had adult children in rehab so we can offer advice and support.
