I asked a minister who does a weekly service at the sober house to go see difficult child in jail. He did and passed along a message from me. difficult child called afterward. He asked how he got back to sober house the other night, etc. Obviously, he had blacked out. Told me he had been drinking for two weeks and had two bottles of vodka the night he left the sober house. I think him saying that is a good sign. I asked if he wanted to return to recovery. He said yes but his ego and pride wouldn't let him return to where he was. (Don't care because he isn't going back there.) I told him about the place where I got him preadmitted. I also said the insurance isn't done so I may not be able to do it. I have contacted a rehab near where he is and he can go there. My insurance will pay but - that is the last time. At one point, he stopped to say, "But I have to make some money." I don't know why he said that. Maybe because he was gaining some independence and then oops, he is back under my wing. difficult child asked if I was coming tomorrow. I said I was and I wanted him to stay where he was until I could get him into a rehab. He obviously doesn't want to do that. A friend suggested later that I might take him on a trip out of town until a find a rehab if the court won't keep him. Thoughts? I could get a room where he is and take him to meeting after meeting over Thanksgiving. He'd be away from triggers, people, etc. here and with people in recovery. Thoughts? I know he will want to drive but his car is here. Besides, I am not an idiot. I found out Friday his license has expired so that would be my reasoning plus his car isn't there. Make sense? (If you haven't figured out my brain is fried by now...it is.) I will sleep better tonight after talking with him. Keep them prayers coming please!!
