does anyone have a grown child in drug rehab? or did you used to? My son has been grown a few years, and we have been dealing with his drug use for a few yrs now. I know even the best of families ,and families like ours, really good ones, can go through this. I hate that some people judge. you can be the best parent and still end up with a child on drugs. If it can happen to ours, anyone's for sure! He is doing well but I feel sad that he will not be here Christmas Eve for opening presents and for our traditions. But at least we can go to him Christmas day. Anyway, if you want to get it off your chest, I am here to talk to about this. Interested in hearing from others. I know people in person in my town and I have spoken to them.

worried a little already and he gets out of rehab soon, a 6 month program. He has done so well, so proud of him, but the worry is going to be there, when he gets home, I can't help it. I hope my BS does't go up a lot over this stress. I can't believe it did not permanently stay up the last couple of years, as we have dealt with this and it got worse. glad I have people to talk to in person, who have gone through the same. it helps. lots of support in my family and with close friends.

I have an older sister than me who was (still could be, but who knows) who had 7 kids and her and her husband were into meth etc. :( my family recently just found out. We try to help her as much as we can but you can only do so much because those who need help, need to admit they need help before they pursue it.

Anyways, there are many many many families who have troubles. Not just cuz of drugs but cuz of money, stress etc. It doesn't matter if your family is "the best of families" because no family is perfect, if everyone was perfect, we mind as well just live in a world with robots. Wouldn't that be boring? Lol
