‘When did it all begin to fall apart?’ A son’s addiction, and a mother’s guilt

These parents try to remember their son, Ben, before his addiction--they share their expereince as they particiate in a  treatment center support group. If you are considering treatment for your child, read this account.

‘When did it all begin to fall apart?’ A son’s addiction, and a mother’s guilt - The Washington Post: "He holds himself still, stone-like, and I see how these five weeks in treatment have narrowed and chiseled him. Is he breathing? I wait for the sigh; it always comes. This is a boy who holds his breath in excitement when he reads a book or plays a video game; he looks up, the chapter finished, the game over, takes a deep breath and then releases it with all the joy of the journey contained in that letting go and returning to the real world."
