Smokin During Attending IPSA.?

Question by James: Smokin during attending IPSA.?
My friend had got busted for a little bit of weed and has to go to this thing called IPSA (Intervention Program for substance abusers) and it costs $ 350 to complete that program, question 1 is If he doesnt have it to pay what can they do ? make him quit the program and do a lot of community service or somethin? Im trynna get him to keep clean thru the whole thing so he doesnt have to keep doin this over and over. I can get him to stay clean for a few days but wen he wants to smoke weed ( I too smoke) we end up doin it. But i havent been doin it around him at all but if he constantly keeps doing it can he go to jail over not keeping clean or will they make him go thru the program longer until he get 24 clean piss tests ? my friend needs 24 clean urine tests rate its gonna take him forever to get that clean. Im not sure if it matters but we are in Maryland (wasnt sure if IPSA was different from the ones in other states) let me know thanks

I don’t think being the child of divorced parents has anything to do with it. A better question would be, why does ANY person become addicted to drugs?

The Social Effects of Drug Abuse?

Question by Reaper: The social effects of drug abuse?
Other than effecting people around them, what happens besides that? Especially to the ones who are using it(again, not around them).
If this was you, how would you solve this problem? Other than seeking professional helps?

PS: This is just a what if situation. I just made it up so don’t worry. Anyways, what’s your solution to this?

Does Drug Treatment Programs Include Activities or Lectures Regarding Family Issues?

Question by Fatima: Does drug treatment programs include activities or lectures regarding family issues?
My brother Jeff checked into a drug rehab a week ago and I miss him. He says that he’s doing just fine and that he’s enjoying the activities and the lectures included in the program. I think he’s in for a fast recovery. Before entering rehab, he had a rift with our dad. They had a fight about his addiction with marijuana. There were shouting and blaming all over the place that the only thing that my mom managed to do is cry. I was wondering if the rehab provides lectures or discussions about rebuilding relationships with family members. I’m wishing for a reconciliation between Jeff and dad.
