I have been through this story myself. I am happy to say my 21 yr old son after 5 yrs of drug addiction has now been clean for 20 months. We, as parents and family, are not all that lucky! There are alot of fingers to be pointed. I for one am glad So Erie in Hamburg is closed. Due to insurance regulations, my son attended So Erie for 2 yrs. He was happy to go. It was the easiest place for him to obtain his drugs than having to 'shop' on the street. I spent $105 / wk for 2 yr at So Erie and they never followed their own rules. How about 'frequent' probation visits and surprise testing?!? The surprise is, when you meet with a probation officer they tell you exactly what days you will be surprised with testing. The system doesn't work, but I think if we keep throwing money at it, that should fix it. I have no more respect for Renaissance House than I do Southern Erie. When I contacted them for help, I was told there was none available. And so the story goes! Let your child literally sleep on the snowy cold mud for 3 weeks until you drag them into ECMC to sit for 12 hours of withdrawal only to be told your case is not critical enough. They can't stand the pain any longer and out the door they go to use again.
