There's never a time I don't think about, and remember the terrible time I had with my son as he struggled with addictions. He had the most serious problem with alcohol, but experimented with many types of drugs as well. He was in an out of , and at first I wondered if anything would work. Finally, he committed to the program. That was the real answer. He had to really want it to work. Once that hurdle was over, he got the help he needed, and finally wanted, and the program worked wonders. Thankfully, life has smoothed over quite a bit, and he's steady and stronger now than I ever thought he'd be. I'll never forget those days, but I sure don't miss them.
