Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
Hi I am new to this board. My husband and I have our 24 year old son still living with us. We encouraged him to attend college right out of high school but that didn’t work out due to not attending class. He went to another college as we were hoping he would do better but the same thing happened there. He has been arrested for drug possession and is now on probation. He is not actively looking for work. Just barely looking. Sleeps late and doesn’t pull his weight around the house. We have been very controlling parents even his bank account so it seems harsh to put him on the street. We have talked about encouraging him to admit himself into a treatment center. It is so overwhelming with so many out there. We think he would need intensive stay busy all day. With self esteem building and life skills. We are in GA but could possibly go out of state. Any advice? -
