My 26 year old son has been in six different treatment centers to kick his heroin habit. The last time a police officer told me if he didn’t get the right help soon, we’d find him dead. He agreed to move to another state and enter a Salvation Army Program. He’s been working his butt off for six months and wants to continue on there till he decides what he wants to do. He detoxed in a hospital for a week before moving to the SA program, but hasn’t taken any medication since. He knows the ball is in his quart and I’m sure he is scared to death. I feel the longer he stays in this facility and feels a sense of accomplishment the better off he’ll be till he finds his niche. Anyone else out there with similar experiences.September 19, 2013 at 2:48 am#161281AnonymousInactive

SA program is a tough program. They don’t play games. If he has been there this long, he has a great start. No matter the prgram… we will get out of any program what effort we put into it. His niche just may be to stay with the SA… yah never know, he could become a Captain for the SA some day.September 19, 2013 at 11:16 am#161280AnonymousInactive
