Has anyone ever been given mixed messages and information regarding how to manage addicted Difficult Child? We are in this boat. CRAFT The community resources provides through juvenile court and bail program are all about Comunity Resources and family Trainjng. This method is against putting your child out via tough love. Harm Reduction Therapy Thai is the out patient community rehab focus. They do not drug test ....although bail indicates our son should not be using any substances at all. What I see with this approach pardon my term her but I think it is Bull . It encourages my son to think he can continue using, and makes him feel like he is above the law. The rehab couselor cancels and reschedules more meetings than she attends with him it is rediculius. I think they encourage you to keep them at home so they don't have to deal with finding a youth housing and placing more of a burden on them vs you. The claim 2/3 of CRAFT participants get to rehab and reach sobriety. Our family couselor knows or son and said CRAFT works with willing participants. She agrees it's time for son to see the door and figure his crap out for himself. She is certain that hRm Reduction and CRAFT are doing more harm than good for him. It eats you up inside to have mixed messages from so-called experts in the field. I have searched the community resources on line and see that they all have sketchy backgrounds as managers of restaurants and certificate in rehab and cousleing. Our family therapist has her PhD and was a director of a local youth rehab facility for a decade. I think it is time to take the real experts advise here. It is baby steps for me. I am slowly detaching. Any thoughts regarding CRAFT and Harm Reduction vs Tough Love??
