"My 22 year old son left BHOPB  twice this week. He is home after 5 days of detox. He was supposed to have a 7 - 14 day detox, as told to me by the staff member, Alishia. My son would then spend the remainder of the time in Phase II....37 days total. This is what I was told before we decided on BHOPB: This is not a one size fits all program. My son would not be over medicated or under medicated. He would be kept as comfortable as possible. There would be a gradual taper off drugs. My son is a multi-drug IV user on suboxone, so he may need even more than the usual detox time. This all proved to be untrue.... My son was detoxed off everything in 5 days. This was "protocol"....one size fits all. The first 2 days my son was described as exhausted, malnourished, and dehydrated. He slept through morning meds and they wouldn't give him anything until 2:00 round. This occured once. Another time the wrong dose was given...computer problem!! If he slept through breakfast...too bad.... Slept through meds...too bad. He was coming off a lot and starting to be very uncomfortable. By day 4, the "gradual taper" had him calling home. He asked to to have his doctor from home call about a slower taper off suboxone, so his opiate craving wasn't as severe.His doctor from home called BHOPB...was told policy is policy. By day 5, he left. I received a phone call after he left. He rapidly found drugs down the street. He called home from the street.We pleaded for him to return. He did. The staff took him back, but would only give him anti-seizure meds...nothing to help with craving. I told staff that if my son tried to leave again, please phone me first. I would get him a flight home. His cravings were bad...he left again...The staff never called until after he was gone. When I started screaming, they said they weren't aware of the conversation to notify me first.... So....While I understand that a person has to want to get help from addiction, there were so many things that happened that made the detox so much more difficult than it should have been.What happened to individual program? 14 day detox? Gradual taper?  There were many conflicting answers from staff and it appeared that one didn't know what the other was doing. I will say that my son's counselor, David, was very sincere and tried his best.  I understand that detox is miserable business, but there were so many instances that made this worse. I put my son on a plane from across the country. I entrusted him to their care. He walked off property, bought drugs down the street easily, and I was notified by the staff that he left AFTER the fact!!!! He was sincere about wanted to begin recovery. He went to groups and meetings and told his counselor that he wanted recovery and didn't want to devastate his family either. But when he said, "Mom, this isn't like they told us on the phone. There is no 14 day taper...I'm off everything in 5 days. I can't take it", I should have listened and got him out, but he was crawling out of his skin and left. I WOULD NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT SENDING YOUR YOUNG ADULT CHILD HERE."
