Deb - I just want to offer you my sympathies and support. You sound like such a caring, grounded mother. I am currently going thru a divorce with my alocholic spouse and the main reason I separated from him, is for the kids' sake. I worry about how all this has affected my kids and worry about them being genetically predisposed to addiction and that scares me like hell. I can only imagine how hard it must be for a parent to see their child go through addiction. I had tears in my eyes reading about your son.. I will keep you (and all other parents with addicted children) in my prayers and thoughts. Good luck and Praying that your son recovers from this horrible disease and leads a productive and peaceful life.
