Hi everyone, I have been reading all the post and this is so scary. My son who is now 16 has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and started smoking pot last summer and is now into drinking. My husband did not think this was a big deal!!!! and there have been no consequences for this behavior!! Husband says all the kids are doing it. I say this is not permissible, our son is self-medicating and doing way more than his friends (his friends talk) He had two tramatic events last Dec. 07 where he lost his position in a band he was in and was jumped while walking to a friends. It seemed from then on it was down hill with school. It took everything in my power to keep him from failing and life was a nightmare. He passed but hated me. This year he just completely did nothing at school and was failing. We just went through Neuro-psy testing and we do not have the results back yet so there is probably more going on than Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)>He was also just started on Zoloft. We no sooner got him into a new school for kids like him who had low self esteem, depression, ADD, ADHD etc. (Suppose to be a great school - only been there 3 days and likes it.) and we experienced a weekend of fear. We live near Philadelphia and the kids around here are out of control. There are parties of up to 75 kids held in the woods and these kids are standing in frigid temperatures to just get high and drunk. My son ended up getting beat up (for a fight he started). One of his friends who does not drink saved his butt. His friends told me he has been drinking alot in the past month and gets "beer muscles" and wants to fight. This is new behavior. He is grumpy,mean,angry, punches things etc. at home but never started fights on outside. My husband I were in therapy but getting no where because he lets my son do what he wants. Anyway I called a new therapist for my son who was recommended by the new school. The therapist told me he would not see him until he was evaluated for Rehab. (Level of care). My husband said he was not sending our son to rehab and and that we need to just talk to him. Talking is not getting us anywhere from what I can see things are just getting worst. When I told the therapist my husband was not comfortable with Rehab he flipped out on me screaming "whats your husband nuts" "Does he want to go to his sons funeral!""He can not take Zoloft and do drugs, he will die" "I can report you for child abuse!" After getting off the phone with this guy I really thought I was going to have a stroke and be rushed to the hospital. I called a few Rehabs and they all said it had to be voluntary and I know my son will not go. So they said I would have to wait till hes 302. I called his PSY. Dr. and I took him off the Zoloft. Does anyone out there know of a really good Rehab in the Philadelphia, Bucks County PA. area??? I am so scared as too where this is going. I wanted my son to be grounded for the fight but my husband is not willing to support me. I know my son would constantly try to take off if grounded, pace, punch walls etc. and I don't think my husband want to deal with the conflict. So just like all of you I am sitting here worrying and hoping he makes it home OK tonight!!!!!!!!!!! HES HOME!!!!!!!!! ON TIME & I AM HAPPY FOR THE MOMENT! Do you all believe Rehabs are the answer, Also would a dose of Zoloft as low as 25mg increase agression. AND AGAIN ANY GOOD REHABS? so I can be prepared. SORRY THIS IS SO LONG> THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
