“Joe was so clear, direct and certain about the necessity for me to keep my commitment to my boundaries that he helped me to follow through
when I was unsure.”
I just read your most recent newsletter and appreciate your reminders about how to stay sane in the insanity of active addiction in the family. I am so grateful for Joe’s answers a month ago when (my son) was in another relapse and his choices were so painful for me to watch. I needed someone to support me in keeping my boundaries and agreements about what I said I would do if he started using again.
He has been at the Christian men’s recovery home for a month (a Denver Recovery home), as of today. To say I have been enjoying the peace at home is quite an understatement. I went to a church service at their church a week ago and he looks the best I have seen him in a very long time. Since all of his other detoxes were medically handled, he was always on some drug or another. This time he went cold turkey; what a tough guy. It is working for him and I am incredibly grateful.
Thanks again for the hope, encouragement and suggestions you bring to me and other families struggling with the pain and chaos of a using addict in the family.
Joe was so clear, direct and certain about the necessity for me to keep my commitment to my boundaries that he helped me to follow through when I was unsure. Since the result has been so positive, I will be forever grateful to Joe for his wise counsel and his understanding of addiction.
I am grateful today, humbled by the grace of God and inspired by Joe, and others who bring hope and skills to those impacted by the destruction and pain of drug abuse.
Blessings and gratitude to both of you.
