My 17 yr. old 18 in 2.5 months ran away 6 mo. ago. reported her then, but since no history cops would not arrest her. lt her stay with a friend, but she got kicked out aftr 2 mo. We were waiting for her to hit bottom and come back. After 4.5 mo. she stared coming back. Came back 3 times in july and aug. 4th time she came back we found out she was lying and sneaking around, susing, etc. At end of our rope we kicked her out until she would agree to do 30 days in rehab. We would do family program too. She refused and was gone 4 a week. We got reported as negigant parents to CPS and are also facing charged because she stopped going to school. We did everything we coul;d for her-therapy, tough love, love, support. She grew up in LOVING , INVOLVED 2 parent family- in fact I do social work. Now I am on the wrong side of the law and am forced to have her here. Noone however will MAKE her go to rehab-in CA she can sign herself out as a minor! She has turned our lives into hell I really don"t want anything 2 do with her until she gets help. What should I do when she is her? I want to stay detached, but am afraid my seething loathing for all she has done to this family will come out. HELP!
