He's been at the halfway house/dual diagnosis place since March 21st. He has been clean the entire time. Even when he spent the money in his Chase bank account (for underwear and socks...bank accounts/money not allowed and we took care of this with counselor but the point is that money did not go to substances). That was back in April. Doing required chores (better since back on ADHD medications, stayed off them for a while at advice of counselor but decided to go back on them). Going to meetings, participating in group, meeting with sponsor. And believe it or not, working full time! (Minimum wage job at a call center) Found him using his bus pass to pay for his friends...rectified, stopped doing it. (Told me not to tattle but I did anyway.) Doesn't call unless he needs something (this really rankles us).On Forth of July a little less guarded and standoffish with his dad, with whom he has had a contentious relationship (he was the heavy, I was the nicer one) Will not communicate with friends, sister, cousin, other relatives (he's ashamed of what he's done, embarrassed.) Is transitioning to the three quarters house, so he is moving up! I am cautiously optimistic at the progress he has made. Husband not so much...he tends to be very negative, kind of a defense mechanism but he calls it being realistic. That's another post... Best wishes and prayers to all of you!
