How can I help my addicted brother?
My brother is an addict. Hes been taking hard drugs like heroin and cocaine. His fiancé found drugs in their apartment and, even through tough love, he makes promises to get clean and relapses.
My mother is sick with a respiratory condition that can be fatal and I fear that he uses also to cope with the fear of losing our mother. No matter what the family says to try to stop him he lies and leads us to believe he's waiting for a bed to be available for detox unit. But he doesn't check himself in.
This month he literally died and the paramedic brought him back to life. He said it scared him straight, which he lied to us about because he continues to use. We are desperate for help and a solution. We don't know what else to do. Please help us to help him get clean.
What can I do?
