Is there help out there for a recovering post rehab drug addict that is still chronically stealing money from family?
(Dearborn, MI )
We think my brother-in-law is staying clean from pills, but his mind and ways are so distorted. He is still taking checks from family members and writing them out (mostly from his dad).
My brother-in-law works with his dad and my husband and does not live with his dad. He just finished staying with us and took one of our checks too. He claims that it is from financial problems from before rehab, but we cannot ever believe a word he says. He is a chronic thief and liar.
He was diagnosed with bi-polar disease (not sure if it is a disease or what). Is there a rehab for theft? I think at least my father-in-law needs help in support in making decisions about what to do with his son. Is it better to prosecute?...how should he respond? He needs support.
This has been going on for quite awhile! The addict is 35 years old so we cannot control him obviously. What can his family and especially my father-in-law do?...for help and support in decision making and to get support for their own hurt caused by this deception.
