My husband wrote a letter to the Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie and he called back! It is just someone from his office but he wants to talk with us??? If you don’t know Chris Christy he is a BIG proponent of getting treatment for those struggling with addiction. At one point there was talk of making non-violent drug charges not a felony and offering help instead of incarceration. If I were to guess, some where in Chris Christie’s life he has been touched by addiction. Maybe a favorite uncle or cousin or friend, I don’t know but somewhere he has gained an understanding of what living with addiction is like and he has empathy for the addict and the families too.
He is suppose to call us back tomorrow. I will let you know what happens. All we really want is to get J into long term in-patient rehab. He will need to face the music at one point with the charges from his current arrest, but we are all out of money and ideas.
