Well, today was different, we had someone graduate from my Intensive Outpatient Program that I am attending. I have been there for four weeks and this is only the second person to complete the program. He is going to do great. The other one, however, is a different story.
His last day he spent the whole three hours nodding in the corner. Yep, when the others in the group told him how disrespectful it was for him to show up like that on his last day, he swore he was just tired. What the hell, we are all addicts in the room. We know the difference between tired and high. This “graduate” was high!!
I was waiting for the therapist to tell him he wasn’t going to be graduating, but it didn’t happen. At the end of the day, she passed out brownies and like so many people do, she brushed it under the rug and in the books she had a success. This is crazy.
