thankyou, we hadnt considered counselling for the rest of the family, but will definately pursue it.
unfortunately, the legal system is already involved and we are all emotionally exhausted from constantly living "on edge" waiting for what is coming next.... the legal system is having a difficult time with him, community service did nothing to deteer him, and they cant give him a custodial sentence because he is constantly reoffending prior to his court date, which delays the process. he is currently on charges for offenses committed over a 5 month period.
he has had a head CT, which came back blissfully normal, and is having an eeg since he started having seizures after an acute alcohol intoxication that required hospitalization. he was diagnosed with ADHD at 5, then the diagnosis was revised to conduct disorder at 10, then at 13 we were told his conduct disorder is "at the more severe end of the spectrum". the problem is that i cant find any services out there that arre capable/willing to help with him and im not the type of person who can give up on him. i dont think i can rest until i have tried absolutely everything to help him.
thankyou for your time.
