How do i help my dad?
My dad has been addicted to pills and whatever else for a long time. He was clean for a few years and then in the summer of 2014 he met a girl that i regretfully introduced him to.
I did not know her that well at all but from what i did know, she was nice. But now she's got him back into doing pills and god only knows what else. I know he is because i find the straws in his room. He used to be nice and caring but now he's mean and always strung out and always asking to borrow money from me.
I've talked to my siblings and they all agree with me. He definitely shows signs of addiction but i don't know what to do. When i try bringing it up to him he gets all defensive and starts yelling and doesn't want to talk to me about it. I just don't know what to do.
