About Me: Female, 39, Dayton, OH, member since May 2010
I am mainly here to try to find any suggestions on potential long-term 6mos+ behavioral treatment facilities for my son. I am most interested in a therapeutic environment for children with severe behavioral/emotional disorders. We have tried residential treatment hospit
[More]al (with no positive outcome, we have tried voluntary therapeutic foster care (to no avail), acute hospitalizations (17 in 10 years), therapy, medications (many), etc. I am trying to find a place that will be therapeutic, teach responsibility/work ethic, preferably have a spiritual aspect and have run out of options. If I do not find a suitable all around therapeutic treatment environment, I am looking at loosing the choose of where he goes for help, it will soon (I fear) be a choice that is taken out of my hands and leave him in a situation that will not offer a long term therapeutic effect. PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!
