This board is new to me-my kids are grown and I am a Nana twice-but a really good friend has a problem with his daughter that I need help with. Basically this 16 yr old is ruining her life and her parent's. I do not blame her, but I need some ifo to help. She is almost 17, adopted from Russia at age 5. The behavior spectrum has ranged from sexual acting out, issues with drugs, school issues, you name it. While she has seen several people, no one has ever used the words "attachment disorder" until I did today.
I need a name or info about how to get a person/agency to help in the St. Louis, MO area. I have tried just a basic search, but can't get anywhwere. I thought I would come here and ask for input. I don't see a board for this issue here, is there one? A lot of kids that age came over in the 90's, they can't all be fine but this one. We want a happy life for this child, is it too late?
I appreciate any help, you can answer here or email me at: email@example.com
Thank you all so much,
