Take a deep breath. Try telling your story again, using paragraphs, so that we can understand more than she keeps going back to her ex, she's broken her supervision and has been sentenced by a judge, and Creston doesn't want her back.

Quit viewing this as Creston trying to punish you. You are just the ancellary victim of this like every other loved one. If you don't have certificates and degrees in addiction and rehabilitation, they are definitely not messing with your program to keep her straight as your program has no weight behind it.

Settle down. Tell your story. Then maybe we can actually give you help or point you in a good direction for help. But again, we are talking Creston, IA. In Creston, your options are very limited. Her ability to screw up and get yet another chance is very limited.

If she used to live with her mother and her ex knows where or can find out, that's where he would probably think of looking for her, wouldn't he? The probation officer may have considered that, among other things.

The problem is, even if she releases out to a halfway house in Missouri, I don't know how long they will let her stay there without finding a permanent residence. If her ex is back in Missouri and has a place to offer her to live, it could be pretty tempting for her to shack back up with him, versus topping out her whole 5-year sentence in prison. That seems to be OP's main concern as well.

One option OP could consider is moving down to Missouri himself. Find an apartment and job down there so she has a place to release out to. Then once she is off supervision, they could return back to Iowa (or anywhere else for that matter) without needing permission any longer.

So after reading your posts several times, I'd bet you a soda she doesn't have an approved transfer plan.

- The IA PO violated her probation and under the new rules, she can be returned on the first and only violation hearing.

- The IA PO not wanting to take her back. If her plan was approved and still in place, he has no choice or further input until she's actually back in IA.

I can understand your frustration as it can be a complex system to navigate through.
