Well my sons new court date is scheduled for July 8. He was arrested back in October for contributing to the deliquency of a minor and using a minor for drug trafficking. He has been in jail ever since except when we bonded him out in May thinking he was ready for a change and to make a change in his life - didnt work - so we had to have the bondsman pick him up at a druggie friends house and haul him back to jail. So now he is wanting to come back home, do drug classes, get GED, go to psychiatrist and get medicine(!), get a job, go to Voc Rehab and do every wonderful thing he can think of - we have done this a million times - taken hiim back after every stint in jail or rehab - it doesnt work - the old friends still live in the neighborhood - his temptations are numerous - we cant supply all the transportation he needs nor anything else - he is 24 - he keeps writing letters that say that is all that will help him - he doesnt need inpatient treatment because he is tired of being locked up and it never works - however I interpret it as to mean I cant have my Xanax in there so I dont want it - I can get my Xanax from the psychiatrist and take it as prescribed (he never did) and live at home - I dont think so - how do I explain this to hiim better - how to I explain to the lawyer, etc. that his idea of outpatient is horrible - who can I tell that he will con them into thinking it is all well and good - I do want the best for him always but know that we have tried this too many times only to fail. Thoughts?
