Driving to a doctor’s appointment today, I rounded a corner and thought I saw one of the mothers from Chris’s old recovery program about to cross the street. It’s been eight years since Chris and her son were in the program, and I wondered how she and he were doing. Did she manage to overcome the sadness that every parent in the program seemed to share about the hopes of their child’s recovery? Does she no longer believe in the medical model of psychosis that the program reinforced? I wonder.
