Dear Son: an Open Letter

Mar 11, 2015 11:49:00 AM

Recently, a friend shared this letter with us. She wrote it to her son, who is struggling with addiction, but has hesitated to give it to him. "It was more therapy for me than meant for him at this point. I think he has to have some clean time to get the meaning...So I have saved the letter to send to him when he enters treatment, whatever that might look like." The name has been changed as the writer wishes to remain anonymous.
