Yesterday I visited my son at treatment – what a positive experience. First off, he looked the best I’ve seen him in a very long time. He was smiling, his eyes sparkled and he even seemed to be standing a bit taller. A warm bed, sleep, and regular meals all seem to be agreeing with him. He spoke about the Health Realization model that this center takes for mental health and addiction. He was hopeful and grateful.
It could be the new-car smell, but for now that’s OK. It’s the best foundation for the hard work ahead. As some point this week, my husband and I will meet with our son and his counselor to learn more about the treatment plan.
