Please pray for my 31 year old son who has entered  a rehab program for drug treatment. Has been using bath salts? until recently I was  unaware  this was such a widespread problem.

Lord, have mercy.

I have no idea what kind of 'high' you get from bath salts but I'm glad he has entered a rehab program for treatment. May the Lord give him strength to overcome his drug habits.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Apparently from what i have learned, legal in most places, worse than most other drugs according to the police. Like I said, I had  no Idea things were that bad. He had passed drug tests for employment but apparently these are not tested for.

Will pray for him.

On another note, please get involved with Al-Anon.  They offer a lot of healthy support and a chance for you to grow through this.

+1 for al-anon. They know what you need to know.

Bath salts are new on the addiction scene. Little is known about the detox process and any long term effects. This stuff really seems nasty from what I have heard. This will be a rocky road for him and for you.

You both are in my prayers.
