I have a 15 year old son,who means the world to me. He's been in so much trouble since he was 13 he went to jail and recently did 6 months. I honestly thought he learned his lesson but times he seems to relapse. He drinks when he goes with his dad and smokes weed. We argue all the time cause I try to tell him he is messing up. I scared that one day I.will get a call he is dead. Someone please help

Welcome to the board. I'm so sorry this is happening. Its going to be hard to turn things around if his dad is supporting his bad behavior, but I think a good first step may be counseling if you can. Is he going to school regularly?

A complete psychiartic workup is the FIRST thing you should do.

Also, if your 15yo drinks and smokes weed with his father, why haven't you called the police on the father?

All has been done. But he talks his way out of everything. The system really sucks
