I am considering having my 22 year old son committed. He is a danger to himself and others. He lost his younger brother two months ago to suicide and I just don’t know what else to do. I’ve offered to help him get into a rehab and everything, but he says no and becomes more violent. Please tell me what I need to do in this situation. Thank u.

Lisa, I am sorry to hear this. My name is Nick Augustine and I am the marketing professional for the firm. If you haven’t done so already, please call the office to talk to Leslie Barrows by dialing 817-481-1583.
