Well, she is days away from that magical 18th birthday. She refused to stay in Residential Treatment Center (RTC) but did agree to go to TLP. Her safety plan was dropped. The first thing she did was get her own cell phone. She is also demanding they remove her birth control implant, she has an appointment for the day after she turns 18. While she has been good for the last few months, I don't see this being a permanent improvement as she still has heavily impaired thinking, she has just learned to do the tricks to get the rewards. Once she turns 18, she is free to leave and no one can stop her. She is a senior, so we are hoping she sticks around until at least Christmas (she will be eligible for graduation, even though she does not know it); preferably she stays for the full year. One good thing is that current boyfriend lives with his parents who have no desire to let her move in. With an 11pm curfew, she is basically free to do what she wants all day so all that freedom may keep her in the TLP.....I hope.
