What is the name of your state? MO

I have an 18 year old son with drug problems. I know he smokes pot and I think that he is also on cocaine and meth. He is staying for days on end and has become very violent towards me. He also has been diagnosed about a year ago with retenitis pigmentosa which causes a person to go blind. I believe this is part of all of his drug usage but I don't know how to get him help. I am afraid that because he is 18 that I am not allowed to commit him to some type of rehab place that can help him with his drug problems and also with his blinding disease. He is alreading considered legally blind and I am unsure if this would help me prove him uncapable of making his own decisions. Any type of advice that I can get or places I can contact would be a great help. I am about to lose my husband over our current situation and since I have the same eye disease as my son I am stuck at home with him alot and have become terribly frightened when he goes on one of his rampages. Please help!!

My response:

Skyy, the woman said she is blind. She can't see that she's on the wrong forum. Give her a break. And, besides, you know darn well that every person who writes to these forums has some sort of disability, disease or other affliction.

Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen - - It's time, once again, for our favorite Soap Opera, "Castenets Time In Brazil" ! !

This is really very simple.

You tell him that in 1 month, you're both going on a "mother/son vacation" to Brazil. How fun! And, that you're both going to take in the sights and local culture. That's the story you tell him.

Then, you take yourself and him to get your pictures taken for your Passports.

Then, after you get your Passports, you buy two tickets to Brazil - - a round trip ticket for you, and a one-way ticket for him.

You both fly to Brazil.

You get into a cab from the airport and go to the hotel where you've previously made room arrangements.

You get to the hotel and get to your rooms, but do not unpack your bags!

After getting him settled into his room, you take his Passport without letting him see you. You then tell him you're going to the gift shop for a magazine.

However, the reality is that you're going to the front desk with an envelope. In the envelope is two hundred dollars in Brazilian money, and your note to him - -

"Dear Sonnyboy: So, you think you're old enough to dislike me and Dad, and to give us continual trouble? Then you're old enough to take care of yourself. I hope you like your new home and country. New languages are fun to learn, aren't they? Here's $200.00 to get you started in life. Don't waste it. Love, Mom."

Have the hotel clerk deliver the envelope to his room.

Then, you turn on your heels, take your bags out of the hotel, hail a cab, and get back to the airport. Fly home.

Let Brazil take care of him.
