My son is 19. He is Bipolar and refuses his medication. Its been a constant battle since we was around 13-14 yrs old. He is now 19 as I said so my hands are basically tied when it comes to forcing him into a psych center or rehab program. Since Easter he has been arrested twice for drunk in public and underage drinking. Both times the officers asked if I wanted to keep him with me, and I said no. In fact one time I sent him to jail myself.
Last night I had a knock at 3am from the sheriff. They had my drunk son who had been wandering the streets with some girl near by house. I told them to take him to jail. I cant handle him acting this way and he is a loud and sometimes mean drunk. He lives with his sister who I called this morning to inform her her brother was once again in jail. She is sick of it as much as I am. I dont know what to do? Tough love isnt working. Does anyone have any advice? I cant put him in rehab unless he wants to go since he is over 18.
