Our 17 year old has had ADHD since he was about 4/5 years old (takes Concerta & Ritalin)as well as developing anxiety 3 years ago(takes Risperdal). He got worse 4 months ago very suddenly. the professionals said that he was having problems dealing with the strained relationship he had had with his biological father since he was 4 years old. He was unable to make sense/ understand it anymore as he had been sweeping it all under the carpet for many years.his step dad & i have had to pick up all the pieces. our son is now seeing a psychologist, psychiatric nurse as well as us attending family therapy.we have had to watch our son being taken away by police so he can be taken to the local psychiatric unit for emergency assesment, which broke my heart. it was the only way he would get the help he needed. he is currently in supportive lodgings(recommemded) which is only for 28 days, then they have to decide where to place him as they say he has complex needs. There doesn't seem to be anywhere for teenagers between 16 - 18 yrs (not 18 till May). what is out there, can anyone help?
