...I am writing this to thank you not only for your guidance, but for your strength in helping us to stand firm with no compromise in dealing with [our son]. I am happy to report to you that [our son] has been at Alina Lodge for over 4 months now. It hasn't been easy (I know it never is) but for many reasons, he has decided to 'stick it out' so far. ...I recall you telling us that [our son's] addiction, our struggles and his recovery process were a blessing. I assure you, it has been. Through the initial pain and confusion, we have come to experience the grace of God and are in a better place now with [our son] than we have been in many years.
