make him leave.
Now you get the true meaning of what Ron means by ‘protective custody’? Ugh. As much as we hate to say it….the comfort we start to have when they are in jail is a little twisted but real isn’t it?
Hang in there!!! Focus on the rest of your family and try to find hidden joy in the season. I know I’m TRYING …. I just wish my son’s PO will call and say that bed is ready at the residential long term rehab!
Is it out of the question to ask him to leave? I really wish that you had some support for yourself. It’s tough trying to handle all of this alone.
Is he at ALL willing to go to rehab? If he hasn’t already relapsed (God, please, no…) then he wouldn’t have to detox, which is one reason so many addicts refuse to be admitted. I know you know all this…just trying to help you think clearer since that is SO HARD to do when you are right in the middle of it.
I’m in your situation. My son just got kicked out of his girlfriends house for stealing. I can’t let him come here. I have other kids to think about. It’s 8 degrees here. I don’t even know where to call for a rehab. I can’t afford to send him anywhere. I don’t even think he would go. What do you do? I’m sick to my stomach.
I am so sorry….I know what you are feeling. There are rehabs that are free but he is going to have to reach out to those. You can’t do it for him. There is usually some kind of wait involved. Many of the free rehabs are Christian based so that would be a good place to start. Take care of you because it is time for him to take care of himself.
