My son is 27 and was diagnosed with ADD at 5 years old. He came off the ritalin when he was 7 because he use to crash everyday around 2pm and cry and cry. He went through his childhood without medication, but probably should have been on it. He was always in the "gifted children's programs" in school, but made bad grades.
He is now 27 and he hears voices, can't concentrate, can't hold onto money, and can't sleep. He goes days without sleeping and eventually takes something to make him sleep. He drinks and has done drugs, and probably still does at times.
He hasn't been officially diagnosed as schizophrenic and he has no insurance to go to the doctor. A doctor did diagnose him as bipolar when he lived in another state.
How can we get him help and how can we pay for the help with no insurance?
My husband recently made him move out of the house, due to a violent incident. He is living in a home, renting a room, and just within the last two weeks, he has spent $1100 and is broke. He works everyday, but never has any money.
How can I help him?
