Worked with my brothers kid. Into alcohol and drugs. Stole a couple thousand dollars from his dad. Dad said straighten up, or I'll put you in jail.Only if said family allows it. Junkie family member? Cut em off! It’s difficult but it is the best thing for everyone. I did it and lo and behold that person is now years sober.
He got into some kind of enlistment deal in the Army where they drug tested him every time he turned around. Spent 12 years in Army, three tours in the Sandbox, hit with 3 IED's. Not seriously physically injured, but has PTSD.
Got out medically, used GI bill for more education. Doing well today.
