My cousin is 22 years old. I'm choosing to help him first because he's young and has his whole life ahead of him. He's 22 and stopped going to school when he was 15. Since then he;s never had a job, drinks, smokes, and does who knows what drugs everyday. Unfortunately his parents are not the best role models. His dad is my moms brother and was troubled growing up also. HIs wife, my aunt, is awsome and was never troubled but doesn't know how to deal with other peoples problems, she overlooks them. I guess she sees it as normal even though she doesn't do it. They never got my cousin help when he was younger and since he's not a minor I'm scared there's no help unless he wants help. I know if he couls he'd live the rest of his life like this. If my aunt and uncle don't give him money he'll break anything he can in the house so they jsut do whatever he says. My aunt has called the cops on him numerous times and they can't do anything unless she goes through the courts which could take a while and it would be painful. I need help looking for a place to being that can make him open his eyes. Not even a place that will change him because I've been around addictions and the process and know it's somehting the addict has to do themselves but if it's up to him he would never change. He has his whole life ahead of him and I can't stand on the sidelines and watch this disaster anymore. I want to find him help. Please anybody help me with anything I can do or call or anything at all please!!
