Help, all my son wants to do is drugs. He failed every class this last sememster, and for the last month comes and goes as he pleases. Has any one used Total Transformation CD's/DVD's? I am afraid sending him away will only introduce him to more bad influences.

Do they have a scared straight program in your city?

Thanks for responding, my psychologist  suggests that as long as we stay in iour disfunctional family situation he will never change. I looked into boarding school but know my husband will never agree to spending the money.

He has been in counseling long before any of this started,  no rehab. My older son went to rehab and it only introduced him to more drug connections.

As for doing drugs at home we don't find it anymore, but he has confided that he wants to try harder drugs.Thinking naively that he will only do it once. The changes he has made in the last couple of months i don't think he could get scared straight, but i will look into it.

 My town offers a "boot camp" experience for 24-48 ours for teens that are having issues. I found out about ours though our local police department. Maybe some tough love will help? Good luck momma

I wouldn't bother with the CDs or DVDs. If you can't control him to go to school, then how the heck do you expect him to sit down for this program?

 Look into Youth Reach....it's a program in Houston,Texas and they take kids from all over the country. Sounds like a really good program and might help. http://www.youth-reach.org/home.html

get him in rehab now. even if he has to be court ordered. we went through the same thing with our son. he ended up commiting suicide when he was 33. it will not get any better unless he gets help
