Yesterday morning my son entered a 28-day residential treatment program for dual diagnosis – MICD (mental illness & chemical dependency). He was deemed “highly appropriate ” for the program. We hope he will embrace this gift of time to commit to understanding his challenges, feelings, actions and addiction. We pray he is ready and willing for recovery.
Although he is not happy about going to treatment, he realized he no longer has any other options. He did not put up nearly as much fight as he has previously. Perhaps his resign will rally as relief once he begins the hard, but insightful work ahead.
