Had a family session this week at Residential Treatment Center (RTC) with daughter. I truelly want to believe the things she says.(But I'm not stupid) She does seem positive and happy (the medications?). She is again talking about coming home. But I just don't buy it. She has asked us to consider some things that send out a red alert. She wants to move into the extra bedroom in the basement (where she could crawl out the window at night undetected) when she returns home. She wants to return to the local high school where she has a reputation, some gangsters from her past are still in school, and she has had littlle success, and.....last night on phone call, she asked to go off birth control. She says it isn't helping her acne enough and gives her stomach ache. She is just not right enough in her head-does she think getting pregnant will get her out of her predicament? The judge ordered her into secure care until age 21 if she screws up again. She says she doesn't plan on having sex again until she is married.(Would insert the laughing icon here if this didn't scare me so much!) We have not directly answered any of these requests and will answer in another therapy session. She asked each one of these things during a visit or phone call, didn't mention them to the therapist. So it seems to me that though her attitude is pleasant, her requests are just out of line enough to show she isn't sincere about recovery! Actions =trust!
