Hello and thank you for being a good JA customer,

I am sorry that you are having trouble with your son. At his age any admission to a treatment or military type of school would have to be voluntary or court-ordered if he gets into legal trouble. But maybe if you presented him with the idea of a residential school he would be interested. They all have websites...
