D called today, after work. Can you believe that they gave him that job back ? Just goes to show,...the boy has charm when he is in his right mind.
And yes,,..I've heard from him regularly since he first got back to FLA. on Wed. night. Today was the first time that I felt good about him saying that he really is starting over on his road to recovery. He already had said that he'd told his sponsor about everything once he got back to FLA., but I wasn't sure whether or not I would buy that....all recent things considered.
Today, when he called, he said that in addition to telling his sponsor, that he'd now also told his house manager....of the sober living house where he lives. That was what he was afraid of doing...thinking that he may be kicked out. Well...amazingly, he wasn't, but was put back onto a plan for those who are in early recovery from where he'd been for the past 5 months...rightfully so. He was moved out of the single room that he'd advanced to...to a triple room, and is now not allowed to go anywhere without another house member with him, other than to work. He also has to hand over his paychecks to the house manager, who will dole out his money $20 at a time. (GOOD ) Of course, of course..this could be bullshit...but my gut feeling is that it's true...and we can easily call his house manager to verify. He's given us his number before, and I think we will call him to do that tomorrow or the next day.
All I can say is that I do know D wants recovery...as tough as it is for him to achieve and continue it. Time will tell, but this kid really has gotten some big breaks. I've got to think that our prayers have been heard and that there's a chance for him to get back on the right track and keep following it. That's what I'll keep praying for.....for D and for your addicted children too.
and also...he's on a payment plan...to pay me back every dollar that he took from me. Time will tell on that too....if he doesn't , I certainly won't continue to help him financially.
