Saw my brother with a needle?
My brother had a drug problem in 2009/2011, I don't exactly remember the years. It broke the family trust and took a lot out of our single mother. It turned into a big law problem and held up his college degree. After that all worked out, he got his degree and has been working for over a year now making good money, which helps with the student loans and lawyer fees.
I'm pretty sure he gets drug tested every week/every other week still. Yesterday I saw a needle sticking out of his pocket. He didn't know I saw it, even when I did a double take to make sure. I noticed him tucked it away and turned around.
I don't know whether I should confront him or tell my mother first. If he loses his job my family is financially screwed and he may get kicked out of the house and I'm scared this will break my mother. I don't even know if this is the right place to put this but I'm scared to call and talk to someone.
