My 17 year old daughter has been seeing a mental health professional for O.D.D.(Oppositional Defiance Disorder) like behavior for a couple months and was placed in a residential treatment facility for two weeks and removed by my wife and I because we felt that was more harmful to her than helpful. We got a terrible Christmas gift when we vistited my wifes mothers house on Christmas day and attempted to get my 17 year old to leave with us and was prevented by my wifes mother, sister, and sisters boyfriend. My daughter refuses to leave with us so the sheriff said we can do nothing because she is not being treatened and she is 17 1/2. Oppositional Defiance Disorder characteristics is to defy authority, rules, and there enforcment. My mother-in-law and her conspirators are all giving my daughter exactly what she wants which is no rules, no accountability. We are livid over this with all parties as you might expect and DO WANT the three of them to pay dearly for butting in where they do not belong or know the whole picture and also want our daughter to continue getting treatment.
I need answers on what we can do ASAP.
