Hello everyone, my younger brother is drug addicted. I can’t stop him anyway. Can you please advise me how can I stop him?
It’s really important not to iscolate your brother or make him feel ashamed for his addiction. Addictions are extremely hard to recover from- especially those involving drugs. Which drug, specifically, is your brother addicted to? If we knew the kind of drug we could probably better help you. It may be a good idea to turn his suppliers into the police (dealing drugs is a big deal and shouldn’t ever be taken lightly). Advising him to begin therapy or treatment, or even a group recovery program could also be a good start. And of course, letting him know that you sincerely care and want to see him be better.
It might be a good time to ask for support from the rest of your family. If you are really worried about his addiction, getting other people to help you means a lot. If any of you are loaning him money, it might be best to stop. He could be using that money to purchase drugs. The more people who talk to him about his problem, the more aware of it he will become. And the first step to recovery is admittance.
