Naked

So, today is one of those days I wish our family life wasn't so open to scrutiny (judgment?). I think, do I really need to tell all?  It's my hope you see an average, middle class family here. Lots of ups and downs, but sticking together in our own fumbling fashion.

Andrew went to his parole officer yesterday, and told her he has been using for two weeks (since his last drug test), and he needed help.  He told her he was days away from a full on run.  She called The Dad and said she was getting him into a 30 day treatment center within 48 hours.  Dad told her we really appreciated that.

Thankfully I didn't wait for the next crisis before I started going to AlAnon.  When I got the news, I had a sponsor to call. I had tools to center myself, and a deep faith that my loving God has a plan for me. And you. Andrew too.

  1. For over 10 years I was an addict and needed dual diagnosis rehab when I got the help I needed, I could start living my life again.

  2. Don’t let addiction take over your life. You can get eating disorder treatment today. Turn to someone who can help.
