Just went yesterday to Nashville to pick up my little brother. He has battled a drug problem his whole adult life. He has had periods of up to 7 years of being clean, along with other 2 and 3 year stretches of clean time.

He does not want to be doing drugs and wants to " get God back in his life". I am very concerned this time. He has been using for the last 2 months. This time it is much more serious. Im am very scared that I am going to lose my brother. He is my only sibling.

I am working on getting him into a rehab, but he has no insurance, and no money, so our options are limited.

He called me for help, so he isn't being forced into this, he knows he needs help, and that he can't do it alone. I am just glad that he called and I was able to get him out of that environment. I brought him home with me, so he is away from any temptation for now.

If there is anyone that may have any ideas on how or where I can get him some professional help, please send me a PM.

Any prayers yall can send would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for the long post.


Thanks

prayer sent for your brother. There is a place in Manchester Ky called Chad's Hope. It is a 12 month recovery program using biblically based treatment. I've heard great things about this place.

I had a very similar situation with my youngest brother. This is what worked. Changing the environment will help immensely. A regular routine-Up at same time as rest of family, shower, shave, dress in clean clothes. eats with family. Has specific chores. Goes shopping with you or Mrs. Goes to Church.
He may sleep for hours upon hours. Physical exercise as much as he can handle. He suffered for quite awhile and I never threw his drug use back at him but I also never let him whine about his problems, poor me stuff wasn't accepted "lets cut that out I need your help with .....".

My brother is clean.

Been there done that. Had a Spiritual awakening, and realized that in order for both of us to survive I had to remove myself from the situation. That's the reason I have custody of my son. Crack is the most demonic substance I have ever dealt with.

Im not enabling him, just giving him a chance to help himself. I know its a fine line, but I am aware where that line is.

Sent! I have a friend that had a drug problem and has been free from it for a year. It was a tough battle for him but the main thing is having someone there to support him. He moved in with his grandparents to get away from temptation and we have been close for nearly 1 1/2 years. He is one of our hunting buddies and I was pulled to the side not to long ago by a family member of his and was told that if it wasn't for us they don't know where he would be today. Support is key. God is the big key as well.
