My 16 yo has had 3 incidents with extreme substance abuse and all the behaviors of a troubled kid. Stealing, lying, skipping school, etc. It's like she read the book and followed the manual. She is actually fairly easy to get along with...when she is getting her way. This last incident left her in the hospital and diverted to a crisis counseling team and it's just dumb. We live in a big city and have a large hospital but I'm underwhelmed. It's week 3 of a 4 month program and the counselor is seeing her to set goals. Goals like "don't use" and "go to school". No real idea on HOW this is supposed to happen. The dr. that we were assured is non medication prescribed Prozac even though the other dr. said that she didn't check any of the boxes but might in time and suggested we wait til complete sobriety. The counselor is a 24 year old social worker that is trying to give me parenting advice and of course my street wise kid sees right through her. I'm just wondering if anyone has been through a crisis treatment program and had any success? I will say this last incident scared my kid. She was huffing and drinking and almost killed herself by shutting down her respiratory system. I think she is actually slightly interested in changes but we both are trying to see the point of this program that seems designed for 12 year olds.
