Hello, this online interaction is new to me, so forgive me if I make a protocol error. My son is 26 has been a mess for many years - the last 3 years in the hospital more than not. Through the help of a lot of good people in the community mental health organization, Son was accepted into a long term residential treatment facility. Son's Dad and I, though divorced 20+ years ago, still coordinate as co-parents. We told Son that if he walks out of this Treatment, he will be walking into homelessness, as there is nothing more we can do. As I'm sure you can imagine, Son walked out after 2 weeks. He went from the Treatment to a Program he had participated in...and under the influence, told them he wanted to kill himself...so he's back in a hospital. And he is no longer welcome at either his dad's or my home. Finding this chat was like being able to breath for the first time in weeks!
