my son's girlfriend took his daughter to New Mexico on what was to be a "visit" but in reality was a way to get home so she could get into rehab. she is an active heroin, crack and meth user. my son was to go and meet her parents half way to pick up his daughter.
well that didn't happen, causing him to relapse, heavily, he went missing for several weeks. just when I had given up hope he contacted me, crying, of course, I go get him.
he seems different.
we detox him, without meds.
he comes to me and tells me "I'm ready for rehab, let's do it!" He makes the calls, heads to the car, gets half way in and says, " I'm so proud of my decision, I want to call Kaylee!"
he calls, I can hear her yelling at him, "ho
you're so selfish!"
"this is so unfair", and "why do I have take care of the baby "...
tears just started flowing down his face, as he said, "you're right I am selfish, I'm sorry" as he got out of the car.
She sent him a bus ticket a week later, he overdosed on his way there, they took him to the hospital he was revived. I guess he walked out of the ICU and was barely able to do so.
since then he has learned many things from her and her family, as they are a long line of addicts, luckily, her grandparents are recovering of over 30 years to guide him. other than that there's no other good influences.
while there in just a few weeks, She had lost custody of the baby, he doesn't have custody papers, so he has no level right according to cps, they're not married, but her grand parents have her. CPS won't tell me anything, even tho me and my son was the primary caregiver to her up until now, without her permission and she refuses. kaylee has overdosed more than 5 times with the baby in her care.
my son now has been back in active using on and off for 5 months.
He wants to come home but my husband refuses to allow him back in our home, or even around, because he had stole some of my things the last time he used. His last relapse was really bad.
not to mention before Kaylee left our lives were upside down with her crack and heroin addiction.
my son is in a state where he had no family to support him, homelessness is not a good option, I have to choose between bringing my son home and putting him somewhere safe, and having/losing every one in my family upset/leave me our potentially have my son die. what would you choose.
It all angers me because this all could have been avoided last year if he just wouldn't have made that call.
