Hello moms... Well I'm a mother of 3 children that I love very very much... I have 2 daughters that have given me no problems what so ever... And I have an 18 year old son that is the apple of my eye, that is addicted to drugs... We have put him through four treatments over the years , which cost me over $30,000 and have not worked... No my son is incarcerated again and he is facing prison time. From the age of 13 till now he is been away from home in treatments most of his teenage years. It first started with stealing money from my husband and myself he stole $30,000 first time and now he's stealing credit cards and maximum out for drugs.... When he's off the drugs he is the sweetest boy I've ever met. Even when he's on drugs he still sweet as pie that's what kills me... It's almost hard to tell except for he loses a lot of weight and gets a little moody. So now he's facing more jail time should I fight it and take him to a treatment or should I let the system take over??? I feel that jail isn't the right thing ,my husband says it is !!!!what do I do????

I thank you for you're reply ... Everyone keeps telling me to leave him out into the cold and he will come around... Or let jail turn him around! We'll it hasn't so far!... It's only made him unable to live out in the real world! I will never give up! never!!!

Follow your heart and fight for your son. That is the thing you can do. It may not change his behavior. I hate to put it this way, but only he can do that-no rehab, no treatments, no incarceration can force him to. It must come from within. Continue to fight until he comes together within himself. This is what I would do for one of my children. (I would also lock up any valuables, but serve up delicious meals) Another round of rehab might just be the round in which he does come together and kick the curse. Never give up. Love never leaves.
