I am the ex-girlfriend and very close friend of a man who is trying to get to rehab for drug addiction. I am in a tricky situation of being his only friend or family in the country. We're very close and still love eachother very much. I find myself back in a familiar situation: he's staying with me till he tries to get into rehab. it's taking a while. My brother who i live with is not happy about t and thinks i'm doing the wrong thing. No one in my family understands my position of possibly being the one thign that could make or break him staying on the right path. I feel pressured by him (whether he means to or not) to let him stay or else he might not be abel to hold thigns together, and by everyone else in my life who cares abut me more than about him, and think i am doing the wrong thing for me and for him. he's getting reactive about my family now and feeling that they are pressuring me and being uncompassionate towards him. I don't want to go against my brother (who i live with) but i don't want to turn my back on someone i love who needs a friend right now. help???
