difficult child is going to a psychiatrist for his drug abuse and bipolar condition. He is now taking medications for the drug abuse and bipolar. I have been trying to get him to go to a drug counselor. So far, he has not been able to find one that will take someone on medications other than a therapist that didn't know much about drug abuse. difficult child has been doing very well over the past few months with staying away from drugs and becoming more of a easy child. He does have an issue with spending money like crazy, which is a part of bipolar. I cannot get him to understand that he needs therapy for that as well. He keeps coming out with remarks like...what is the therapist going to do, take my money and bank it? I tried to explain it is a behavioral issue that the therapist can help him work on. difficult child hears "behavioral" and thinks of behavioral as raging, etc. He also thinks a drug counselor wouldn't be able to help with anything but drugs. How do I explain it in difficult child terms?
