J is no longer in control. Fortunately the alien has not completely possessed his body because he has decided he has no choice but to go in-patient (unlike when complete alien possession takes place and he would do anything for another fix). Things are looking up but I will believe it when he is actually checked into re-hab. Saturday is the big day! This was not entirely his choice…the writing was on the wall. He stopped attending (OP)out-patient…shocking right? Probation was today and he was going to test dirty and show zero attendance to all mandatory OP meetings.
Call my son names but stupid he is not ….today he called rehab in the morning, met with probation officer this afternoon and admittance IP on Saturday. All great things and none of them involved me…which was really great and unique to previous stays. Let’s hope things change because it’s what he wants. If he did this for the wrong reasons we will be right back where we started a short time after he is released.
Why do addicts not think about the possibility of over dose and death? I am sure Corey Montieth, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix and my own brother and sadly I could go on and on but none of them went to sleep thinking they were going to die? Why does my son think it will never happen to him? Why do they all think they are smarter?
