Attention Parents: Sending your kid to rehab is an extremely emotional (and expensive process), but recovery actually starts after rehab!
Today's topic is a rough one because I sympathize with the Mom or Dad who wants to bring their kid home after rehab. It's natural for you to want to take them back under your wing. You miss them and want them home. I get that!
BUT...watching them get better makes it totally worth the resistance to bring them home! So many parents put so much time and money into getting help for their child, but then undo it all by bringing them right back into their old home environment.
This usually results in disaster. Not only does the kid go right back to using/drinking, but your family goes right back to chaos.
Hope for Families
