My difficult child was discharged from rehab today, and he is back at home again! He was in the substance abuse program for 30 days, and he swears that he is ready to start his new life. It is really nice to have the "old" son back again, now that he is clean and sober. He was such a mess when he first entered rehab that he looked high all the time (and he probably was). I keep telling difficult child that it will take time to trust him again, and that he has to prove to husband and I that he can be trusted. I let my difficult child walk over to a friend's home, someone who doesn't use drugs. Now i am wondering if he is really with this friend, or if he is getting high with the total losers again. I really don't believe anything that difficult child says unless I can actually prove that it is true. I am so glad that he has stopped using the synthetic weed, and that he looks much healthier than just one month ago. He will start the intensive outpatient program tomorrow, and he will start back at school on Thursday. I am hoping for the best with difficult child, but I will still worry all the time.
