My son is using. I’m not sure how often he uses. I am worried that if I send him to rehab he will learn about and start using harder, more dangerous drugs. Is there any information on people getting worse, not better, from treatment?

Rehabilitation can not make a persons addiction worse. Rehab is for treating addiction and treatment addresses most aspects that contribute to a persons addiction. There should be no concern for rehab making your sons addiction worse.
