Recently my husband and I had to make a really tough decision and have our high functioning autistic son placed in a residential facility. After years of dealing with his extreme violent outbursts , and recently he has taken to smoking pot everyday, stealing and panhandling, we had to make this very tough decision. His 14 year old brother couldn't take it anymore, I had to think about what this was doing to him as well. I am heartbroken!! I love him sooooo much and I feel so guilty, and I'm wondering if we made the right choice. Any advise on this would be so helpful. Thank you.

Kathy, you made the right choice. He needs help! And maybe one day he'll realize it was for his own good. Good luck!
