My cousin used to have an addicted son. She knew he badly needed help because she just can't contain him after all the talks and pleas she had with him. Painful as it was for her, she knew she had to bring her son to rehab for his own sake. It was very painful for her when the rehab workers arrived at their house and took her son. She cried as she saw her son crying and pleading not to bring him in. I told her to be strong and let her son go. She would go to all the family activities the rehab center offered for them. Her overwhelming support helped her son all throughout rehab. Now my cousin no longer has an addicted son. She now has a very sober son with a wife and two kids to take care of. He never went back to taking drugs anymore and is now focusing on his own family's welfare. This story shows how an overwhelming love and support from the people you love can actually pull you out of your addiction. The genuine love my cousin showed her son helped him walk through the dark path towards a better and brighter life.
