My son was recently diagnosed with ADHD, ODD and poor impulse control. A couple weeks ago he was molested by his grandpa. About a week ago he started to show the signs, so we called the police and talked to the detective. His symptoms of the ADHD/ODD is about 100x worse, he is on concerta, risperdone, and Tenex. My sons doctors feel like this may warrent a hospitalization. I am not too sure. Alot of it is because he was molested, and then you add on his ADHD/ODD. He is destroying our house, breaking walls, kicking walls punching them, swearing profusly at us, he is terrified to sleep, he is tearful all the time, he is wetting the bed, and is angry in general. I have done everything I can do to support him. He needs help that I just don't know how to give him. Any advise/help would be greatly appriciated.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
