Customer Question

my son fantasizes all the time and this has led him into trouble with the law. If has a $1 bill, he will start telling people that he has $100 and will tell them how he is going to use that money, etc., etc. Is there any way we can put a stop to this?

Hello, I am very sorry that your son is having this issue, I can understand why you are concerned for him. If your son is willing to seek out treatment with a psychiatrist than the use of psychotropic medications will most likely help to stop this behavior. It is possible that he may require Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well to help him better cope and move forward with his life without this behavior. The psychiatrist or his family doctor can refer him to the appropriate psychologist/therapist for treatment.
