Welcome to Just Answers. I agree with you that your son needs to get back into treatment. He's at a pivotal age right now and can't be wasting his time with these non-productive schemes. If he doesn't like the Concerta, maybe he can try another med for ADD
. Concerta works for some but not others.
You can always call his doctor and find out what his diagnosis was. It may be different now, but at least you'll be able to find out information and know where you stand.
The stealing without remorse concerns me - and that is a large amount of money.
No matter what the cause of his problems, he is still accountable for his recovery from them at age 18. Bad things happen to good people, but still, we all have to find a way to live in the future instead of the past. He needs help pushing out of the numbness
of the past and into his own future.
My best to you.
