No one believes he should be around me. However, he cannot be left unsupervised and I am the designated supervision so it isnít like I could even go to a domestic violence shelter as I would be charged with neglect of a dependent. He has the highest funding for treatment he can get and is getting NO services. Canít even get call backs!
I did talk to a group of gentlemen today that are friends with most of the police in a 3-5 County circle... they are going to see why I canít get anything done. At least one of these gentlemen has a daughter at risk so he has a vested interest in my being listened to.
However, the service providers, mental health counselors and psychiatrist will NOT make any of the necessary referrals to get him put some place... even though his behavioural counselor is significantly reducing his hours with him because the mental health counselor is afraid of the liability

Is there some way to remove yourself as his "designated supervisor" legally?

That is the issue... no one will willingly take him on without basically a court order... so someone has to have prosicutible charges and prove intent... or if I die the state has to take custody. But everything around us is privatized so it is hard to make them take someone. The last two times the state removed him they couldnít find placement for him so he came home with a list of service providers... but none called us back. The system is just so screwed up!

Excellent article . . . with no real answers. So frustrating! And frightening.

In my jurisdiction, parents can petition the court for guardianship of an incompetent adult child and in that petition they can ask the court to appoint a person other than themselves to be the guardian - there is a public official in each county whose job includes being in charge of wards. The law in my state cannot insist or force the parent to care for an incompetent adult offspring.
As I am one of the people appointed to represent the alleged incapacitated person (it is considered an adversarial proceeding so they have a right to counsel) I have seen how hard it is for parents to get to that point.
If you have not done so, and if you are in the united states, I would suggest consulting a family law/probate attorney (guardianship are often lumped into probate) about what you can do do be taken off as the responsible person or to get someone else named (like his father). It also might take (depending on the jurisdiction) something like you having the psychiatrist and therapist help you prepare info with reasons why you cannot continue to be the responsible person.
