Hi all, currently son has gotten out of rehab, last wednesday. His case worker called me tuesday afternoon to let me know they would be placing him in shelter care until a spot opens up in a group home for him. They do not want him coming back home until he is in a group home for awhile as step down from the rehab. In the past he has come home from the hospitals only to return to drug seeking and self harm almost immediately. He is very angry at me. He told me he is better now, he needs no one to help him that he's got this. He does not need to be in shelter care OR need to go to a group home. I am only doing this for my sake, (which s a bit true), and he said that he will not go to the group home willingly. I told him it is court ordered and he has to go. He went balllistic on me and told me he has not been home for almost 6 months now, gee, who;s fault is that. In and out of the mental hospital, intensive inpatient and now drug rehab. He wants to come home badly. Never once mentioned he misses us, I think he just wants to come back to do his drugs again. He has not touched his studies and is now one complete year behind, he is 16 and in 10th grade, Special Education and has an IEP. I am thinking he is VERY High risk for dropping out at this point. sigh.... I am glad that he is going to be going into a gorup home, but now more work begins. AODA counselor wants hubby and I to do therapy, go to NAMI sessions and learn all about drug addiciton and mental health before he comes home. Seems to me that we may be working harder than son. Hubby told me we are going to take a breather for wahile, we will have the trauma therapist keep coming but that is all for right now. I don't see son changing at all towards us. He really does not want to be with us or do anything with us. Not sure how all this is going Occupational Therapist (OT) pan out. I am so greatful that the county is finally acting though. We COULD NOT keep him safe any longer. And, he can't stay home by himslef and was starting to refuse to come along. What in the world does one do?
