My 17 year old has been a regular pot and alcohol user probaly since 14. % mo. ago she hooked up with a sociopath(her therapists words) left home and couch surfs (basically is homeles). Wanted her to hit bottom and come home. BF dumped her ater cheating on her w best friend, gave her herpes, therapist says she is "traumatized". Said she hit bottom, told her she was grounded for breaking rules (3days), she can't take ANY rules and left again.I think she just got fired from her job, she got in a fist fight w a girl over the jerk BF. We are almost positve she is now doing coke and oxycontin. My heart is broken. Her Dad and I are still married, were always very involved parents, gave her love,experiences, therapy, anything she neede. Now we are not willing to enable her behavioir anymore. here is the question_we have 3 mo. until she turns 18. In ca. she can sign herself out of rehab, if we send her to a wilderness progra in oregon it will be 17,000 dollars for 30 days. She does not think she has a problem. Should we wait for her to hit bottom or force her to go to a program we really cant afford? My husband thinks its pointless to send her if she is not ready. Any Advice?
