My son went to rehab,it didnt do any good at all, he hated the 12 step programme, and he said it was more like a boot camp, he isnt rekigous at akk, and the person in charge he said rammed God down their throats all the time I didnt like the sound of it either, the person in charge was boasting it seemed how he killed his wife, and sounded a horrible man I had to fill in a form saying what he was like at home,i filled it in truthfully, as my son never got nasty or caused any problems at home, he was told i must be lying, as no one on alcohol was never nasty or causing trouble, I think the problem was that drug addicts and alcoholics were treated all the same My son is an alcoholic, never taken drugs, although still drinking but less Also this man said addicts were always thieves This was in Runcorn,
As soon as he came home he went and bought a bottle of wine,he hated every minute in there, I felt very proud of him for going in, but very disappointed when he came out though, He is still drinking,but not as much I dont see why they have to push religion down their throats though, he does go to another meeting, cant remember what its called which he enjoys
There will be local drugs and alcohol service you can refer yourself too (they often have funny names) but they will be in a good position to advise on suitability and a good match. Also perhaps to do some groundwork before going in.
I dont think he wants to stop, just cut down, but its not easy, he needs to stop, he is a twin and the other one is almost as bad, their father, who i am divorced from is a drinker, i am not, My son didnt drink excessivley until he was stabbed, by a stranger, no fights or anything, his girlfriend at the time had a jealous ex,he broke into her house while my son was there.asleep, he stabbed him in his head and slashed his leg open, then got some wine close by and poured it into the wound, he is lucky to be alive,also just missed his eye This is what set him off, he rarely goes out, he should have had counselling
I'm not sure that's true, I think some do want to stop, they just can't see a way to actually stop. I think of it like a Angel and Devil inside them, one says stop and one says drink... Devil says it'll be fine just to have one or two... They often have to hit rock bottom before they'll get it.
