My dad is on drug offender probation. The PO said that he would not give permission for my dad to go see his doctor. If he did, then he would arrest him, "for violating probation." The PO wants to refer my dad to "one of our (DOC"s) own" doctors for treatment, "to make his (PO's) life easier." My dad has been going to this doctor for many years, prior to him being put on probation. The PO does not, and I quote, "think that this doctor is appropriate in treating your mental conditions. It is just all in your head."
My dad is on prescribed medications for Bi-Polar and mild Schizophrenia and has been on the same medications for many years, as this is what works for him and has allowed him to remain mentally stable, however, the PO again, "feels that he does not need them and needs to be reevaluted" by one of the PO's chosen psychiatrists. Until then, the PO wants him to stop taking the prescribed medications. The particular medication (Marinol) contains THC, which prevents the drug test from being negative when tested. However, the PO threatens to violate my dad in the event the drug test becomes positive again and then states, "I don't care if you become mentally ill again, I just have to have a clean drug test." The PO even referred my dad to the drug treatment classes, etc.; there, he was evaluated and told that he did not need to be there and not to come back.
I realize that you may not be able to give me adequeate advise, but I am just trying to get any advice at this point to help my father. Thought more information may help, if not, then thank you for you time and advice already given. It is greatly appreciated.
