A month ago I was referred a client with attention deficit disorder who had been kicked out of his school because he was found with a mild opioid prescription pill. His parents were concerned and found deeper substance abuse problems that the school was unaware of after they investigated. With the help of his psychiatrist, who referred him to me, I was able to put together a treatment plan that the the Fairfax County School Board's Hearings Office -- the discipline arm of one of the nation's largest and highest performing school system's -- credited with their decision to allow him to return to school. Whooohooo!
