Our son is 9. In the past five years he has ran away twice had two er intakes, one five day stay at a local mental health facility,done four weeks of partial care, spent eight months living at my parents and most recently a summer of therapeutic camp. We have had family based services for ten months and things are not getting better. He was given a month to get it together, with constant supervision, which as you all know meas no sleep for mom. The physiatrist feels that it is time to permanently remove him from our home due to the safety of our other four children. I really want to plow through but my husband and I are at a point where we have exhausted all other options. Please reply if you have any positive or negative feedback about where we are headed.
