difficult child recently admitted he has a substance problem with pot and pain killers. Our insurance says he doesn't need inpatient. He can detox on his own and attend outpatient. He called a place for detox and they said he isn't addicted enough for them. difficult child says he cannot do it on his own. He has tried a few times and can't get past the second day because of the pain is so severe. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on how to get into an inpatient program? Even the police detectives in town have said it is hard to get into inpatient detox. They recommended that he lie and say he has a more severe problem than he does.
