it sounds to me like the smoke and mirrors deal, the school is claiming a full time status, but on medical leave. How much is the "child" paying the school to remain on a full time status. How much a year does it cost to not go to college these days. I feel bad about his problems, but how much do you plan on giving the "child". I would assume he is getting the same from both parents (215) and there is no way he can afford to live on his own. I would maybe question the therapist at this point, I mean mentally he may need to have his own place, but physically it sounds almost dangerous. After all my useless mental wandering and typing, If I were the Dad, I would say if he is not paying the college, I am not paying, and I would go to court and have it stopped (at least try). I would also tell son, man, child that when he goes back to college, I would help him out. The crazy part to me is that the child has basically a prescription for his own apartment, but no real way to pay for it, I would definitely check into disability.
