PO called yesterday- now he's denying that he ever said Residential Treatment Center (RTC) is an option. He said he'd recommend it and not stand in the way if I could pay for it or my insurance would- that can't happen at this point. He said he had to get his recommendation in for difficult child's placement after his release from Department of Juvenile Justice. He's going to recommend a group home with reunifications efforts (ie, the ultimate goal is that difficult child would return home at some point) but the final decision isn't up to him. If this doesn't get approved, and in all likelihood it won't because there are only two left in the state and MANY kids in Department of Juvenile Justice who have NO family at all, then there are only two choices left- and neither are good.
