If you or someone you know is addicted to meth and seeking treatment, let me first congratulate you for making the decision to chose life over death. Finding the right treatment program is healthy for your recovery. It is "very important to ask questions" when talking to admissions of treatment centers. Do not go to the first treatment center that sounds good....

My son has been in a destructive relationship for 6 years. They eventually got married last year and have been living with my husband and myself for the last three years. I would do anything for my son; I have had one son killed at the age of sixteen and after that I pretty much let Jason do what he wanted to his detriment and mine. I feel like a lot of his problems stem from the fact that his father died when he was nine and his brother was killed when he was twelve. He was a great kid; active in school and very outgoing until about 15. That is when it all changed. My husband tried to warn me but I would not listen. I should say that this is my children's step-father but he was there from the time Jason was ten so he was more than just a step-father; by all intents and purposes he was his dad. It seems that when he turned fifteen; he got in with the "wrong" crowd-drinking and pot. We took him to counseling and he could con the counselor into believing anything. It was all our fault; he was doing nothing wrong. I even tried to put him at Vanderbilt for inhouse treatment for drugs but they told me pot was not an addiction. Now years later he is paying for this. He has three beautiful children by two different women and is now in a relationship with another girl. She has a special needs child and I am afraid this is not a relationship Jason can handle. His former wife is causing all kinds of problems and will not let him nor us see his child unless it is at her home. Jason tried to kill himself in January and went to Rolling Hills for inpatient treatment. He came home a different person. Like the Jason of old. I know he is not ready nor needs a commitment at this time but that is where he is headed. If someone has any input for me or any suggestions; please feel free to let me know. I don't want to allienate him but I feel like this is going to happen when I talk to him. Yes; I have been an enabler for years. Making excuses and giving money to him to help make it.I think his only addiction is pot and destructive women. He was not brought up this way. I always tried to live my life so my children would not know how it was to live with parents who were addicts and destructive. My parents were alcholics and would fight daily. My children never saw that side of them because they had quit drinking by the time they were born so they only remember the best of them. I thank God for this; however where does this destruction come from. Is this a hereditary thing that I could do nothing about or am I to blame for this wonderful person growing up to be suicidal and only happy when he is miserable?

I Do Know that anything that I tell/e-mail you, You Can Not relay to the patient. I do know that that is a HIPPA violation.
Ok, with that being stated as Pre- knowledge and Fact, I shall go on.
Hello and good morning and thank you,
My name Red, Blue's partener for 11 years and would be wife. He is a new patient in your Amazing program. I have heard nothing but good reviews.
I'm e-mailing in regards to things that Blue said before he left to go admit himself into rehab. He made comments like I'm going to go mess with people's heads.
I have recently gotten my third DWI, His son recently started acting up and got sent to Military Academy, his father got really really sick and then he died in December while Blue was holding his hand, and he does not handle Death well, about five years ago his best friend ever Rick died because he was drunk and got into an accident in the middle of the morning and died because of it.
In Praise of Lois and Bill Wilson’s only child...

Hi, I was just reading an earlier blog about Infinite Horizons in Koh Samui and wonder how objective this really was. I've just returned from a three month stay at Infinite Horizons and my experience was completely different. I stayed in a shared room and was aware from my peers and the assessment team that rooms are priced according to whether they are single or shared. Whilst the place wasn't full to capacity (one of its main selling points) I found the atmosphere and the clinical teams input sufficient for me to make the changes I needed at a pace I was able to work at....
I have tried for several years to get my grandson diagnosed but have been unsuccessful because of his self medicating. Drug treatment centers (Share-Hoffman Estates, IL) have totally failed him. After spending 15 days in Share, he was kicked out. He saw a counselor a total of 5 minutes in 15 days. He never saw a Psycologist or Psychiatrist even though we informed Share that we felt he was suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and was probably bi-polar. His mother and a brother are bi-polar. His medical doctors have also felt he was probably bi-polar. He suffers from high blood pressure and a very rapid pulse which his doctors believe are caused by his anxiety.
Share felt that a five minute counseling session was sufficient to help him. What a big waste of money!
Anyone know of any way I can get him diagnosed and helped! I do not wish to bury him. HELP
I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?

Infinite Horizons rehab centre in Samui: I paid $11,000 US more than others for the same treatment.
I have just returned from Infinite Horizons rehab center in Samui Thailand. I felt compelled to let people know that although I found the treatment to be very good, the pricing and administration is not up to scratch. I was charged $11,000 more than everyone else for exactly the same treatment. Other patients reported gross overcharging too and inconsistencies. So if you plan to go there be very wary of the above. Many of the patients had issues prior to and at departure relating to price. Also whilst there I was exposed to pharmacies, bars and massage parlors in very close proximity to our group excursions. People including myself found this too much and broke the rules by acquiring drugs and in other cases receiving erotic massages. I feel they failed their duty of care by having temptation right in front of the group. Good luck with every ones recovery and choose wisely where you receive treatment. Thailand is pretty unregulated from my experience. I would suggest looking elsewhere for the above reasons. I was however happy with the therapy staff and feel my recovery was a success. Just hard to separate my emotions over cost from Infinite Horizons rehab center in Samui whilst there.
