    Is there any source for these difficult child teens who do not do drugs or drink alcohol? or just one for conduct disorders? I thinking along the lines of group therapy - how they can all relate to each other? Just wondering if anyone could help.

    I don't know of any. Have you tried googling teen support groups?

    Maybe his therapist holds group therapy sessions or would be willing to? My difficult child's therapist will put together a group of her patients (split by boys and girls) of the same age for group sessions.

    Ditto what wyntersgrace had to say. N*'s psychiatrist holds a weekly session for teens. There are some kids who attend who have some substance abuse issues, but their sessions are not exclusively focused on recovery - they have other groups for that. They talk about peer pressure, school issues, family troubles, sexual abuse, dealing with ADD/ADHD, ODD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and other mental health issues. If your psychiatrist/therapist doesn't offer one, certainly they are aware of a local group where you can be referred.
