I have had a problem with my daughter for about 4 years now with truancy issues.

That is awesome, I'm glad the change of venue kicked her into gear! 

I took in my niece last year - similar attendance issues (no issues w/ drugs but she was diagnosed bipolar - and is doing well now that it's being properly treated w/ medication & therapy).  She attended the alternative high school & absolutely thrived there.  I can totally relate to your feelings of happiness & relief.  :-) 

Good for you for sticking by her & encouraging (nagging?  LOL) her while she sorted through her issues.  You did good & so did your daughter! Congrats to you both.
