Hello group.. after a rather long hiatus, I’m back. Adult son is facing hearings in upcoming weeks. He’s been in treatment out of state for the past year. Treatment hasn’t gone well. He is still unable to get off suboxone (been on for 14 yrs) and has been placed on numerous other serious medications on top of it. Possible plea deal ... 3-6 or 4-8 years which is a gift! One charge alone held a 25 to life - 3 strike rule). Problem.. He won’t get on flight back. Have bought 2 tickets.. first didn’t get through gate on time. Rescheduled 3 x. Missed flight last night. Giving one more chance to be on flight tonight. He tells me it’s so easy to say “Just come home and do the time. But it’s not you doing the time.” I get it, but isn’t 6-8 yrs better than LIFE?? 23 years of this madness all coming to a head. He’s mentally impaired by all of the drug use. No doubt he’s continued using on top of all his other medications to cope with his impending incarceration hanging over his head. He has 2 sons, his father and I arent getting any younger and our health has continued to suffer ( husband had heart attack) due to the stress. We have attended NA and AA meetings. Just feel with this answer to our prayers of not “ life” what can we do to save him from himself??
