My sister was here twice, the second time worked.
My brother is finally getting the help he needed at Best Drug Rehab. When my brother was 16 he started smoking pot. When he wouldn’t stop smoking my mom sent him to rehab. He truly needed help and yet that rehab didn’t help my brother at all. What it did was give my brother a whole new set of friends who were into heavier drugs. He was at that rehab for 6 months and he was smoking pot the day after he got out. Pretty soon after that he was meeting up with some of his friends from rehab and they introduced him to heavier and heavier drugs. It wasn’t long after that when he started using heroin. Everything got pretty bad after that. He dropped out of school, we wouldn’t see him for days on end and he was always high when he was around. My mom and dad begged him to get help and just refused to do it. About 5 years ago my dad and brother got into a huge fight. My mom was literally making herself sick with how much she was worried about my brother and my dad just couldn’t take it anymore. He kicked my brother out and told him not to come back until he was ready to get help. I was so mad at my dad for doing that. I’ve realized since then that he was just protecting my mom and I. My brother was on the streets for the next 5 years. I saw him once in all that time and it was by accident. My mom and I happened to be at a gas station when we saw him. I was really upset at how my brother looked. My mom though, she was devastated. My brother was so skinny you could count his ribs, he looked like he hadn’t bathed in weeks. When we got home my mom begged my dad to find her son and take him to rehab. My dad tried, he found my brother and tried to get him into a program by my brother refused and basically disappeared. It took my brother 3 more years to ask for help. As soon as he called though my dad picked him up from wherever he was and took him straight to Best Drug Rehab. He’s doing his program now and he’s doing so much better. He’s gaining weight and is starting to look healthy again. He’s committed to finishing his program and getting his life back. He’s making it to all his classes on time. He calls the house almost every day just to check in and keep us informed on what he’s doing in his program. They have classes there for him to get his GED which he’s taking so that he has a better chance of doing well when he finishes his program. I know that addiction isn’t something that can just be fixed and that my brother will have to work hard to make sure he doesn’t go back to using heroin. He’s taking his program seriously though and because of that for the first time in 10 years I have hope that my brother will be able to stay clean and sober. I’m not fearful that my mom or dad will tell me that we have to bury my brother and that is such a relief.
