Hello- I have over 30 years experience working with individuals, couples and families with addictive disease issues. I am happy to help you
I am so sorry to hear about the living hell you have been going through over the past 5 years.
As a Therapist who also happens to be a Criminologist, I would definitely encourage you to talk to her probation officer about this as in these cases, you have to be aligned with them and never give your daughter that she can get away with anything. Otherwise, she will continue to work you.
You are beyond that point now and she has made her choices and although difficult you have an obligation to include the probation officer in this. You may need their help down the road and to maintain trust with them is key. Again, there is no trust with your daughter and the best way to get her life back is for her to know that there will always be consequences for her behavior.
I would encourage you to talk to the probation officer today. Get it off your mind so that you can have some measure of peace.
If I can answer any further questions about this, please feel free to ask.
Otherwise, I wish you the best with this most difficult situation.
