Hi all - haven't posted in forever - but still read about you & yours daily. At some point soon I'll do an update on how we're doing here. D's no longer in the horror show he was in back in Aug. & September, thank God ! He's not yet where he needs to be, but definitely progressing - and living back here in VA., nearby,...just moved into an apartment with a friend that we've known since they were 10 yr,s old. And amazingly- D's going to school again, at the local community college - taking 5 classes. Like I said- will catch you up on him later. All isn't wonderful - still plenty of concern for how he's doing, decisions he makes etc.
Meanwhile, a good friend of mine- my former teaching partner, has a son who's an addict- addicted to heroin. Was doing well for awhile (not really though) on suboxone- and is now a mess again. She called me after work today- saying they're going to send him to a rehab (his 2nd) - the other was quite awhile ago - at least a couple of years or more ago. She asked what I knew about Narconon - specifically their place in San Diego county - the Sunshine Summit Lodge. I took to you bloggers - the ones I trust way more than just reading Internet reviews. I did a quick search & it sounds like a nightmare - is run by Scientology. I don't know much at all about Scientology other than its association with Tom Cruise & John Travolta - which isn't informative, obviously. From the little I've read so far - wouldn't spend my $ at Sunshine Summit Lodge or let my son anywhere near there. But thought I'd ask all of you if you know of anyone personally who went through or knows of someone who did a Narconon program. Any info. would be appreciated.
I remain praying for your sons & daughters recovery.
