Our expert says:
with the type of problems you describe a school will not work if she has a drug addiction, as this would have to be treated first.
If someone refuses drug rehabilitation a court order can be sought that directs them to treatment without their consent if it is felt to be dangerous to their health to not intervene. You would need to consult a Clinical Social Worker who specialises in this field.
I would suggest you contact the Cape Town Drug Counselling Centre on 021 447 8026 for referral advice.
