Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
I am sorry to hear about this terrible situation with your granddaughter-
Are you available to chat now?
If you can share where your granddaughter lives and what the financial situation is I will check residential resources
I see you are typing- can you please send so that I am certain that the system is processing correctly.
I can share with you that based on my experience with children with this type of history that a 6 week residential program is most likely not going to be successful in effecting much change. Most children need a much longer therapeutic residential program to address what are obviously deeply involved and complex psychological issues.
If you can provide me with information on the state and country where the child lives, if she is covered by any insurance policies and what other financial resources may be available. I will be happy to check on possible options.
I am switching to Q & A as I am not certain that the chat mechanism is working properly. I will reply to your response in that forum.
