Help! The possible diagnosis isn't a big surprise, but the potential move is. Apparently, the easy child has seen what he feels is a pattern of mood swings that aren't triggered by anything in particular. When my son first went to the group home, he had recently been placed on medication for his mood for the first time. It seemed to work as far as calming him. But, by the time he entered the home, the dose had been doubled, and it was too much for my son. The easy child, who doesn't like to medicate kids for behavior to begin with UNLESS it's for a serious problem, took him off of medications (with the psychiatrists okay) to observe him. He's done so for the past three months. Unfortunately, since he's been off the medications, he's back to his impulsive behavior which is getting him into trouble. He hasn't done anything horribly against the rules, but his easy child said that his Probation Officer could decide, based on these "incident reports" that he isn't progressing satisfactorily in the program based on his lack of self control. When I asked what would happen then, the easy child told me that they could take him back to JH while waiting for a transfer to a "level 14" facility where they have an on-site psychiatrist who will basically do multiple drug trials to find something that will take care of the impulsiveness but not zombie-ize him. His easy child said that he's not in the business of kicking kids out of the program and wants to get my son back on a medication trial at a smaller dose to see if he can function better in the program. I HOPE this will work because the "level 14" facility sounds really frightening. Does anyone have more information about what sort of place this might be?
