Congratulations on the new addition to your family. Your granddaughter is very lucky to be welcomed into your family, to be surrounded by love.
And I am happy to hear about your son. I know how hard it has been for you. Once my son came home from treatment 18 months ago, he made the decision to stay away from any of his former drug-using buddies; he knew from what he had learned that just being around them could be a trigger for relapse and hopefully your son will feel that way.
I know that nothing I can say or do can stop him if he decides to blow it and use again
In the event that relapse occurs for your son, it does not have to result in "collapse", it doesn't have to mean that he has blown his recovery. My son has had a recent relapse using alcohol (to help with sleep
) but, he is taking responsibility for his recovery, going to 1 or 2 meetings a day for right now, and working closely with a new sponsor. I think it is terrific that your son has gone back to work and that he has found a sober living house .... those are positive steps in making a smooth transition.
Hang in there. You are not alone.
