We had a guy last night who picked up a "new" new comer chip and his mother walked up with him. This guy is maybe 22 or 23 years old. After the meeting he was sitting on her lap. I can't make this up people. He had been out of the facility we were at for only a week and had relapsed. His mother had no idea how full of shit this kid is. She came up to me in the parking lot and said "if you people don't treat my son right I will contact my attorney." I was about to let loose an extremely self righteous speech when I saw behind her smugness the desperation of a mother. The plain and simple "oh god please, I'm trusting you with my boy and I don't know how to fight this anymore" look. She walked off before I could say anything but I stood there and prayed her all the way to her car because it's all I know to do sometimes.
Hey....I'm kind of chatty this morning. Let's get on with the business of the day shall we? Peace out.
