For years I wondered why my son could not break the grip that drugs had on him. I thought he was weak and not willing to change his ways to overcome this horrible disease. My sons mother reached out to Carmine Thompson for help and still I did not accept that my son had a problem he could not overcome on his own. My phone number was passed on to Carmine and he called me. He explained the disease my son had was one that without help he could not overcome himself. I listened to Carmine and began to realize that he was right and that my son needed professional help if he was ever to lead a normal life.
Within days of talking to Carmine he was at our door ready to help us move our son into a treatment facility on the West Coast. We met as a support group the night before the intervention and to be quite honest I still did not believe that this would work and that my son would go willingly. The morning of the intervention we all sat in my sons living room and he came down the stairs he looked around and sat beside his mother and I. Carmine led the process with calmness and expertise and within minutes my son agreed to go to treatment and he said I am glad you came before I died from this. My son is in treatment now and I am beginning to learn about how I can help my son live with this disease and how I can become a better father and person for it.
Believe in miracles because they can come true and Carmine is living proof of that.
