I need help fast, guys.

I have recently suspected my brother has been into drugs (lost his job, erratic behavior, money troubles, poor hygiene...), and I just found all the evidence I need in his pocket. Two hypodermic needles and heroin (what I presume is Heroin). He is passed out in my parents living room right now. I do not know what the **** I am supposed to do. Our stepdad pretty much despises him for how he treats our mother, and I really do not want to have to tell her this. I also do not want to see him in jail, since that will pretty much ruin his future, and not to mention how it will hurt his chances of getting to have anything to do with his daughter again. I am at a complete loss right now. I have no idea what to do or who to talk to.

I emailed a friend that is a therapist to ask him for information on who to contact and how to go about this. **** this sucks. Anybody here have experience with this at all?? Please help me.

Jail was the only reason my dad was able to kick Heroin. He had to do it cold turkey in county, but it does work.

Now.....what he does when he gets out....that's another story.

Sometimes people just don't want to change.

Go ahead and tell your mom what's up so she won't get too concerned about what all the noise is coming from the closet. This will all be over with in three to five days. He will thank you later and you'll have peace of mind that you saved your brothers life.

For those confused by the assault charge there is far more to this story than what I have posted on here. They are still in the process of getting a warrant. Unfortunately this town cannot afford a drug dog, otherwise this would have all been settled last night most likely.

Hang in there bro, you did the right thing. Family troubles are tough to deal with sometimes.

I'm sure glad my siblings are a bunch of boring nerds(except me of course).

For yourself Bowener go talk to a pastor or somebody in confidentiality. It's ok to break down yourself & get a grip of understanding of the monster you and your brother face. It is on your brother to recover but you got to be able to deal with it some how for yourself too. Prayer is a good place to start and seek guidence.

God speed brother. Hang in there & stay strong.

This is an issue I had to deal with for a long time. My cousin, who I am very close with, is a recovering heroin addict. Until they hit rock bottom, there isn't much you can do to help. My cousin OD'ed and spent a week in a coma, and that was his rock bottom. When he woke up, he was so grateful to be alive that he finally decided to face his problem. He turned himself in for the felony drug charges against him and spent some time in prison, but that time in prison helped him a lot. It gave his life some much needed structure while he recovered from his addiction. It also gave him additional motivation to never use again. He's been sober for almost 3 years now and is studying to become a mechanical engineer.

It's important to remember that when you think you might be helping him, you might actually be hurting him. The best thing you can do safely steer him towards rock bottom. That is the only thing that will convince him that he needs to help himself. The longer he stays hooked, the less likely he will ever be able to get sober again.

You've seen too many movies. There are people who, you know, GO TO MEDICAL SCHOOL that should be in charge of this process.

Update:

Police finally searched his truck and found drugs and paraphernalia, as well as jewelry that was stolen from my mother a week ago. Unfortunately only the worthless stuff remained. There is still roughly $8,000+ missing, but we think we know which Pawn Shop in Independence he may have tried to sell them at.

Honestly I feel relief knowing where he will be for the foreseeable future. It all still seems surreal. We are hoping the judge leans toward a court ordered rehab program, but the county judge isn't know for leniency.

You did the right thing dude, this was the wake-up call he needed... even if, as Hamas said, it makes him hate you for a while.

When/if he straightens himself out, he'll be grateful that you had the balls to do it.

Were i in your shoes i wouldnt second guess it for one second, it had to be done and you did it... good job, sometimes love is tough.

Yep. I don't feel like it went well. My mind was on other things obviously, and I slept a rough 90 minutes before I had to get up. It isn't the end of the world. I will have other chances. I actually found another opening today closer to where I currently live, so that is pretty great!
