My son is 16 and in the CCIS unit right now. Everyone feels he needs to be in a residental environment for awhile so that he can deal with his illness and life. The doctor is afraid that he will be in jail soon if he doesn't go to one. The state has a certain agency that the CCIS is working with to see if he qualifies for placement. Supposedly if he does qualify, he has the right to decline going. I keep being told all his rights as a child and it seems that in our state of nj, we have no rights as parents. We tried calling a lawyer dealing with family law and we were given the name of someone else to try. We called that lawyer and he told us that there's nothing we can do. Anyone have any input on how to find out our rights as parents?
