HELP! 18yr old son refuses medications and I am 7 months pregnant

Hi, My son Tony is 18 and in the past 3 years we have helped him thru numerous sucide attempts, mis diagnosis and wrong medications, making him go from suicidal to homicidal, hospital stays, arrest for violence, group homes, runnaways, probation, expelled from public highschool... and more. I love him very much, but am terribly afraid to have him back in our home as he will not Stay on his meds (and NOT SMOKE) I am pregnant 7 months and cannot risk his violent behavior. He has manipulated his way into staying with friends but is now being forced to leave... I don't want him homeless, but I really dont know what to do. Any help or direction you can give will be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you,

Heart broken Mom
