Thank you for your excellent intervention services this weekend. I’m sure we would never have had the positive results if you had not been involved. In fact I think we would have done a lot of the wrong things and not have had any results at all!
You were right about the fact that Susan is the weakest link and your education around co-dependency and what we could be doing as a family to provide a ‘unified front / all singing from the same hymn sheet’ was really helpful. Instead of the angry resistance that we were expecting Henry agreed to enter treatment immediately, just as you had predicted! This new approach to Henry’s addiction is already showing positive results and we hope that you will be available in the future if we need you to ensure we’re on the right track.
Henry is now 2 weeks into his rehab and has a whole new attitude. We will see.. I hope Henry continues to co-operate for now and that there will not be too much more drama because I am getting very tired of it all.
Jeremy is back in Cape Town and Steven left for France last night. I know this is the beginning of all the hard work for Henry and he will not like it and probably drop out. But maybe I’ll have a few more weeks to catch my breath before we have to get into action again!
Thank you again, and I’ll keep you posted in the future!
