So many topics...So little time... Do I hit on the areas of treatment lacking for all our children,or only those that apply to our situation.My fear on this issue is all talk at the moment is pointing toward youth addiction.My son being 25 is no longer eligible for any treatment geared toward the youth ( 18-24).Even tho his brain still works at a teenager level!!
Do I tell Our Story..risk losing it, as I share the hell we have been thro this past 5 years.Showing the impact on the families,emotionally,mentally,physically & financially..tug perhaps at their heartstrings ??
Do I strike out at their pocket book ( where the answers always seem to be..sorry we have no money).
I have done my homework and know that money invested in Addiction treatment, is much cheaper in the long run and short term then housing our children in prisons and Jails!
Do I dare Challenge their commitment to addiction...Oh don't get me started on that!! Their broken promises etc.
Do I remain courteous and polite...Or let loose like the mad Mamma I am !!
Do I go into Addiction is a disease..and deserves the best possible treatment like any other disease!!
Do I go armed with facts and figures..Pick any of our daily newspapers,surely then can read right ????
I have time to prepare,decide,seek input from others..
