My boyfriend whom lived with my son and myself for a year before I dropped him off at rehab a month ago. I whole heartedly supported him going and I know it was the right thing to do because I have kept in contact with his mom whom said he is doing wonderful. The problem is..... he has not spoken to me since I dropped him off. He was released yesterday and completed the 28 day program. I contacted his mom and she has told me that he is leaving the area and no one will be contacted. Should I hold out hope and wait for him? Should I just accept the fact that this is what he needs for his recovery and will never contact me or my son again? I have never done drugs so this is very hard for me to relate to so I really need other people's input. He was mainly addicted to heroin but also used other drugs. Please let me know if anyone can relate to this. I am having a hard time dealing myself but I am attending therepy to help cope and deal with codependency. Thanks!
