My loved one broke down and said she needed rehab 3 days ago and was on a plane the next day to a center, assuming still in detox.
What are the general rules about communication? Before going she said she know she will probably be gone “at least a few months?” and i am not sure if trying to contact or send care packages is unhelpful or if we should let them initiate contact. Her ex-spouse who is supportive and has children with her handled the insurance and coordination so I am not even sure what center she is at, just the city.
Some background this is severe opiate and alcohol addiction that has been going on for a long time.
Also, she has a very toxic ex-boyfriend who is on again/off again, and I am afraid he is going to manipulate her into leaving. His response when she told him she was going “but what about me? you don’t need rehab you go to work everyday.” He is also an opiate addict.
