I have posted b4 regarding my nephew being a heroin addict as all of you know the stress on the family is extremely tough. It is my sis' son, he is 29, been in and out rehab 4/5 rimes, stolen from her a ton of times, she is raising his 2yr old daughter b/c the mother is also a drug addict in and out of jail. Anyway, things have gotten so bad, i really thought this past weekend my sis made a tiny step to letting him go, but he calls yesterday and today we r back at 1. His older brother and I think that he should prob be in jail or atleast a long term rehab, they have paid for another rehab which he was supposed to start 3 wks ago and still hasn't. so basically they paid for 1 month and if he goes 2mrw they will get 4 days. he has a po, but she has threatened violation a 100x, but never followed through. My nephew(the clean one) and I are so concerned w/ the health of my sis and her husband and we think maybe we should have an intervention with the 2 of them.They know what is going on, the lying, stealing,still using, and their addicted son keeps doing it to them. Well tonight my b-in-law made it clear he does not want him in jail. I was thinking of calling the po and asking if she can atleast put him in a long term rehab program 6mos to a year. i guess we are at a loss, should we just let them do it their way??? They are not blind to it. and i know it is tough for me to say anything, my boys are young and I don't know how I would feel if I were in the same situation, they have tried so many ways to help him, we all have. Sorry to ramble but just need some advice here. they could lose everything they have worked so hard for if he really screws up, he can harm another person, he could end up dead. He needs more then just rehab, he needs life coaching and help for his depression and anxiety. Some days he cries like he wants help so bad, next day totally diff person. thanks for listening.
