Re-reading my subject line, I should have phrased it to the effect that I had contact with four within 24 hours, not technically "today."

Short update is that The Daughter was going to detox, not rehab (I get the two confused, but I believe "detox" is primarily physical and medical withdrawal management and "rehab" is about longer-term treatment and mostly focused on mental and emotional recovery management). She came back unexpectedly on Sunday evening and left Monday morning for her usual programs and to reapply for emergency SRO housing again. She looked much better after detox and was optimistic. Last Thursday evening, The Boy (or "Nick") was scared off by one of the others (henceforward, "Jack") who was here for a couple of days. The Boy called me Friday afternoon from an acquaintance's cell phone to talk briefly, but otherwise says he has a place for an indefinite period, if not food or much else.

I am now struggling with increasing depression and anxiety which is the normal issues I deal with at this time of year, but having all the kids coming now doesn't help. Struggling with setting limits.
