I am at the end of my rope.My son has been living with me for over a year now. He has dropped out of school. Starting abusing drugs and alcohol. Recently, starting leaving when ever he wanted. I started to report him as a runaway. It is very hard for me. I love him very much and want to help him. He is refusing any help. In the last week he has just been caught for theft and underage under the influence. I am hoping the courts will force him in a program. I have looked for ones myself but I am a single mom and cant afford most of the programs out there. I am not sure what to do anymore. I do have a younger child at home that I worry about his influence on him. Any advice you can give me would be great.
