Son in jail, Dad lost!!
Last summer I flew home to help my son because he did not have work or a place to live. A few weeks later, I discovered he was making meth in my house.
He refused any kind of help and I did not have the strength to contact the police. Well, a year later he has been arrested for manufacture of meth.
I refused to help him this time and he later accepted a deal that if he accepted treatment at a 1/2 way house he would be released. Within 2hrs. of his release he was caught shop lifting. He is now back in jail. Can you believe he wanted me to bond him out but I refused again. He has now denied me contact with his attorney.
Now, my question. I live in Mexico. Should I go back and visit him in jail. Could it help any or should I stay clear? I am struggling with trying not to rescue. I will not bail him out as I now know this is his chance.
His valued car, cat and computer are now gone. We have helped him out on 2 other situations and family member another one. It is so hard.
and Finally Remember:
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”
– Matthew 7:7-8

Denial of Addiction is so common it’s almost trite to talk about it, but it can be over come if the people around the addict/alcoholic keep trying!
