I am the Mother of a herion addict, my son has been in recovery and lives his life in
full recovery. 38 yrs ago I was blessed with a son and now 38 1/2 yrs I am blessed again, my sons is back fully recovered. He did it all himself and the help or Preovidence Rehab. of Portland Or. I all happened the day my father his Poppie passed away I told him "NO" for the first time I wouldn't let him come to Idaho for the funeral. From that day Sept 23, 98 (about that time) he told care of checking himself into treatment. His past has destoryed me finicially
butit is my wn fault I was the biggest enabler
to get him out of my face I gae him money...I cold go on and on but the past is the past, now on with the furture. He has lived at the Oxford House which is a clean & safe living house, he is president of his chapter the Oxford House Organization is a wonderful place to stay he has been their 1 yr on Nov. 13t we celebrated his 1yr clean and sober. He has taken care of all the wrongs in his life (things like DWI, failure to pay child support (he has 1 son that loves his Daddy clean & sober) his charges of possession) he has taken care of all his legal things that have been in th past.
We would love to write a book sometimes of all the things he did to himself plus the danger he put my life in...I could go on & on but the past is the past. the furture is in his hands go with it!!!!!
PS I see so many negative things on talk shows it would be nice to see more positive things
