My son is in detox, this is his second time in detox, he’s been accepted into an excellent rehabilitation program for teens BUT he needs to wait for a bed. The estimated wait time is the end of November.
He’s young and he’s accepts that he needs to go into rehab but wants to go NOW. The month or so he’ll need to be in a transitional facility is causing great anxiety for him and the rest of us. Teens can’t rationalize the long term benefit versus immediate gratification. Please pray that he can dig deep and find the strength to make thru the transition and get into the rehab program.
And an extra potential benefit, the rehab program will talk to him about a higher power, AAWOL, and the guy that runs the program is Catholic. There’s a chance a lot of what I’ve been telling him about God and Catholicism will be reinforced.
