difficult child just called me. There are apparently some issues with the program director(Pastor) and one of difficult child's friends. The friend was given a lot of responsibility. He has had a rebellious spirit lately. Pastor (program director) has removed responsibilites. Friend is mad. He has fed difficult child a lot of "manipulative" information. difficult child believes everything that "friend" says. He has always been this way. difficult child is naive and innocent for an 18 year old addict. I am worried that he is going to get himself "kicked" out of the program because of manipulative "friend." husband isn't as worried. He is a good friend of Pastor---he is a graduate of the program and has been a big supporter since he got clean. He and Pator talk regularly. In fact, Pastor called him Friday to get some advice and give husband a head's up on the issues. He believes Pastor about "friend." Pastor is an older female who feels she was called to this ministry. difficult child believes "friend" about Pastor. Friend is an ex-con and recovering addict who has been "saved." I told difficult child to let the issues between pastor and friend stay between them and he should just do what he is supposed to do! On top of this difficult child had another wreck on Saturday morning. (And easy child's car was egged and tp'd in my driveway!) This is not boding well with my stop smoking program!
