As many of you know, my youngest brother recently committed suicide. My other brother has been hooked on heroine for the past several years and it has gotten progressively worse as he lost his best friend a year ago and most recently our little brother. His girlfriend is also addicted to heroine (they have been toether for 7 years) and they are both extremely unhealthy. My brother’s girlfriend is high every time I see her and she is stick skinny, it’s sickening to see. After my other brother died, my little brother went to go stay with my mom in another state for a while to get clean and his girlfriend went with him. They have both been doing really well, they are two weeks sober and have been attending NA meetings everyday.
For those of you who do not know, my mother is a psychopath who can’t be trusted. Unfortunately, my little brother trusts her time and time again even after many horrible things she has done to us.
Last night my mother stole my brother and his girlfriends cell phones while they were asleep. When they woke up she ambushed them with a surprise intervention (even though they have been sober for two weeks already) and basically told them that they had to go to rehab, in another state, seperately. She told them that if they refused to go then they had ten minutes to get out of her house and never contact her again. Obviously, my brother and his girlfriend packed their stuff and left. My mom then tried to plant her perscription of xanex on them and called the cops saying they stole it!!! The cops believed my brother and gave them a ride to their NA meeting. (Let’s not forget that they are in a different state, with no phones, money or cars) My mom also called someone that they met an NA and tried to tell this person that they relapsed and we’re high. So now my little brother is stranded and someone from NA is going to drive him ten hours back home.
My cousin then called me and told me that my mother told him the reason they went there in the first place is because they are in trouble and owe a bunch of money to a drug dealer. I am also being pressured into not helping them and turning my back on them. I don’t know whether to believe this statement about the drug dealer, mostly because my mom lies about EVERY THING and cannot be trusted at all.
Bees, I don’t know what to do. I don’t want my daughter to lose her only uncle left and I can’t lose both of my brothers. He doesn’t want to go to rehab but he has been sober for two weeks going to NA meetings…am I being totally ignorant to the situation? What should my next move be? I have no way of getting in contact with him, he will have to get in contact with me again first. I don’t have money to give them and they know that but I feel like it’s my job to help him because we only have each other now..
