My step son overdosed on February 13 2021 after battling addiction of opiates for years. We just spent thousands of dollars for him to go to detox and be in treatment for 60 days. The day he got out he flew to Dallas Texas to pack up his apartment and move back to Los Angeles his home town. ALONE. he traveled alone to Dallas. I had offered to go with him. He went alone and had in his opinion what he called freedom. In my opinion traveling alone meant no accountability.
This is why a sober living or halfway house is so important when someone exits a treatment center for any type of addiction. The night he overdosed his wife and friend whom he was staying with called us looking for him. My husband, his father explained to them that he needed a sober living. He shouldn't be alone. Alone in his own head. Alone to be free to do whatever. Alone to escape life on life's terms.
Unfortunately it was too late. People need people when they are in recovery. They need to rely on each other and be there for each other. The opposite of addiction is connection. A group home serves as the best way to connect to others. To be accountable.
