It has been eight months since our intervention in Chicago and I am happy to report that so far and to the best of my knowledge my son has not taken a drink and continues to be active in the program. After a month in treatment he returned to Chicago and entered a six week intense (4 nights a week for 3 hours each) out patient program and followed that up with a once a week program for a couple of months. He has been able to get all his legal issues behind him and has found a job in the same area of work as in the past. He is active in the AA program and has been active in this program since his return to Chicago. I must say, John, that from the first day I called Betty Ford and they referred me to you for assistance---That my son’s life, our life and our relationship with him has turned in a very positive direction. You were certainly the first step down this difficult road and of course, the first step has to be successful for everything else to fall in line. It is because of that fact---we wish to thank you and commend you for successfully leading the way toward a road to recovery for my son. Of course, it is just the beginning for him be he has a different direction today and you and your team got us started.
