Our fifteen year old son is coming home from a ranch in Northwest Arkansas this Tuesday. After 7 months of absolutely no progress they have thrown in the towel. Chase was diagnosed 9 months ago after a 3 week stint in a hospital. We have had him in counseling for the past 4 years. I could give you a blow by blow of his actions for the past 6 years that I have been in their life but I do not feel a I need to. My wife(her son, my stepson) is at the end of her rope with him, but it is her son. Her last option we feel is to sign him over to the state of Louisiana where they will place him in some type of residential care until the age of 18. We are both participating members of Al Anon(me) and Alcoholics Anonymous(her) so we understand how to erect boundaries and not enabling. If anyone out there could shed some light on another path we can choose, or other options. It will be greatly appreciated.
