Hello
This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
If the therapy and treatment plan is specified as to who and when, yes it is contempt.
But if it is not and you had to stop because of work, as long as you become enrolled again someplace more conductive to your schedule it is not contempt.
I suggest you get enrolled and begin the court ordered treatment as soon as possible
