It's been 2 weeks...saw him on Sunday...he looked and sounded better. He says the depression is much better since medications were adjusted...Wellbutrin was increased and Buspar added in the hospital during detox. His counselor did confirm that he scored low on the depression scale when evaluated. He wants to come home after discharge. He wrote up an elaborate contract....will apply for 2 jobs a day, no drinking IN THE HOUSE ( how about no drinking, period?) will respect parents, etc. etc. We want him to go to a sober living house. I can feel myself wavering. But I know the recovery home is the best thing for him. At home he'll be back with his friends, going to the bar, arguing with his dad, begging us for money, etc. There will be a honeymoon period, then it will be the same old ****, I'm sure. I hope we stay strong. I know some of you have had your son/daughter stay in a sober house and I would like to hear of your experiences with them.
