A Father's Journey by SoTiredI have tried several times to get him to see a counselor. The lady who prescribed the Suboxone for him said SEVERAL times the medication alone is about 15% effective but medicine AND counseling is about 85% He has seen a few of them from time to time but I doubt he ever really got into the issues. He just went because I forced him to go. This time I stopped what I was doing, which was enabling him and taking the urgency away. I would solve all the problems. Retrieve everything from the pawn shops, pay all the delinquent bills etc. When I did that the urgency was gone!!! So this time I said you are on your own. If you want to pawn everything you own go ahead. If you want it back then save your money and go get it back! I think the limits now set are working because he knows it's all up to him now. I am still not sure he is seeing anyone but I know he told me he is now signed up for the rehab app. I also fill him in on some of my counseling topics and he is very appreciative of me taking the time and effort to educate myself. It's all so hard.
