Should I send my daughter to inpatient program?

Postby LisaS » Sat Mar 17, 2018 3:18 am

My daughter's counselor just recommended we send her to inpatient program at a drug and alcohol center. I knew she had experimented with a lot of things, but I really didn't realize she was drinking so much/often. She suffers from genetic (from me) mood disorders and extreme anxiety. Should I send her to the D&A treatment facility? Will her mental health be okay in there? Any advice, cautionary tales, or ideas?

Hi LisaS,
I know how devastating it must feel for you to send your daughter to be sent to a facility for help. But she will get all the needed help there. Her counselor is there to counsel what is best for your daughter. I was sent in a mental facility, and I definitely got my needed help. But keep in mind, that she will need you to visit her often, because that's what I needed the most is for my loved ones to keep on visiting me and bring me goodies.

Hope this help you with your decision.
