The Next Step

My son appears to be doing quite well..working the program & all reports from his program are positive.In fact he is looking so much better that a pharmacist who administers his methadone asked him for his ID! He had been away for a few weeks and he did not recognize him..This was not lost on my son as he couldn't wait to tell me..every word,morsel,tidbit of positivity is just what he needs...He needs to learn to love himself again..these little successes can add up and help him achieve that.

He is actually taking his Dad & I  out for supper this weekend..His treat!! We are not rushing him on anything,he needs to heal both inside & out,this takes time.I see my son slowly emerging..Such a long way to go..but..One Day at a time.                                                                                                                                                                                                I am still focusing alot of my energy & time on learning about addiction,,,and attempting to help in any I can to get better treatment for our children here on my Island.It is a daunting task..I would love to have a parents support group..we are so lacking in that area..and with so many parents now speaking out it would benefit us all!! Maybe that will be this years goal !


  1. This post warms my heart! I am so glad that he is doing well. One day at a time! I think that a parents group would do well today because so many people are now speaking out. When I started one a couple of years ago, there was still a lot of stigma and shame so people were afraid to come out. I think it would be different now. I am happy to provide guidance if you wanted to start one up! It is easier than you think. If you are interested, please let me know!

  2. I was going to ask you for help !! As Always you beat me to it by offering..Hugggs
    I will be in touch..There are more parents speaking out and I think we can offer each other so much in with resources etc..There is power in numbers..xo

  3. I am so glad to hear that he is doing well!!!
