My son is 22 and started having behavior trouble since middle school. We tried counseling and eventually rehabs once we found out that he was using drugs. After several rehab attempts, we sent him to be home schooled and live with his grandmother during his senior year after finding drugs in my house and discovering that he was smoking crack around his toddler brother. I think he felt that I chose his brother over him, but that's neither here nor there now I guess. He has now been in and out of 19 drug treatment programs, has been shooting heroin and going into treatment as a ticket into various halfway houses in between drug binges. My parents kicked him out, and he has burned just about every bridge and crapped on every opportunity he has been given to get it together. I'm really frustrated because due to the serious drug addiction no one can see that mental illness is a major factor that led to the addiction and was made worse by it like a vicious circle. I did not understand the difference between therapy and psychiatrists when he was under 18, so despite all the therapy and counseling he was never diagnosed with mental illness and the addiction then took over. Dual diagnosis rehabs didn't do anything for him. I am at a loss for what to do to help him. I realize that he is grown, and do not enable him, but I'm his mother so here I am, desperate on an internet post, praying that someone has an idea for me to try. Thanks .
