Hello, i have a 10 year old son, who has ADHD,ODD, Anxiety, and social interaction disorders. He is always getting into trouble at school, daycare, kicked out, sent home.
He is on medication for the ADHD and ODD, but it seems to only work for a few weeks and then he is back to the same things, then the increase the dose and then the viscous circle starts all over again. I have tried mental health, anger management, counselling, mentoring programs. intense therapy at a hospital, and i am feeling stuck. i am not sure who else to try to help my son. It is over whelming, i am a single mom of 3 kids, and my youngest is a huge struggle, i am feeling lost, and like i have failed. Does anyone have any ideas that may help me out?

I have tried to search online, but i can not find something that can really help with his age group. everything is for teens, or young adults.

Desperate to help my son.

thank you

I have asked about what kind of stuff they have here for him, but they tell me that he needs to be 14 yrs old for most programs which is frustrating, cause what do we do with our children who need some extra support. I will give this number a call and see if there is anything they can help me out with.

thank you

Hey Monica,
I'm sorry you're going through all of this with your son. *hugs* You're doing good mama. In addition to your love it sounds like you are doing everything you know to do for your son. Have you asked any local counselors about residential options or other suggestions?  I know Focus on the Family has counselors you can talk to free of charge (855-382-5433). It might be worth giving them a call. They've always had helpful suggestions when I've spoken with them. You're going to get through this! Praying for you & here if you need to chat.
