my son has tourettes and i also had them as a child. he is now 16 and on probation for doing street drugs.. Is this going to make it worse? is there a way to have the school help us? He is asking for help and i am so worried that noone will be able to help us.. Can you help us?

I would discuss it with his Dr, I don't see how the school can help aside from offering phone numbers to rehab or mental health services. So i would start with the dr who knows him then go from there.

IF he is on any meds to control it, street drugs could actually kill them because street drugs can and usually are mixed with other stuff that arent safe for human consumption worse then the drug itself.
