My son is in recovery at a very good year long recovery program. He is in his 4th month and feels like leaving the program. He has co-disorders as well as addictions. The program does not address the mental illness (anxiety/depression). I need prayers that my son fully commits and gives it to God. He is a believer, he just needs God’s guidance or to rely fully on Him. If he does not complete this program, he will be sent to prison. The terms of his probation are contingent on this program. That being said, I want to say how easy this seems to me- It feels like a choice that he should be able to make on his own. But somehow, this is not an easy feat for an addict. I guess I am also requesting prayer for myself to be strong and instead of being ready to ridicule him, I need to understand the mind of an addict. I have known him for just under 30 years and feel as if I no longer know him at all. I feel desperate and weak. Please pray for my son and his children that are at home waiting for his recovery program to end so he can come home and be the father that they deserve. Pray for his wife who is straggling daily to make ends meet. Pray for me so that I may grasp an understanding of this addiction. I have nowhere else to turn. Thank you.
