In speaking with the manager of my son's D&A partial program about further in-home help, it was suggested I research (specifically) wrap around services as a possible option for our 17yo difficult child. I have been researching online, found numerous contacts in my area who provide such services, left messages with some, and plan to call others tomorrow (of course, no one there - it is the weekend). I would like input from anyone who has an opinion or information regarding this type of service as far as effectiveness, if a referral would be necessary, cost, etc. We are really struggling with difficult child as he refuses to get up on school days, misses the bus regularly, many days has no other transportation available (parents' job shifts/not available to drive everyday), and is failing school partly due to chronic tardiness and absence. In speaking with a local police officer as well as a therapist (formerly worked with difficult child), we were informed that we cannot physically engage as far as pulling his arm to get him up out of bed/lifting him up out of bed, as we may be liable legally; in the past, difficult child and husband have been involved in altercations. On a positive note, difficult child continues to attend partial program and is said to participate and is also willing to continue to see his psychiatrist (she has been on board mainly for medication checks; at this point, difficult child is off medications pending further evaluation).
