I’m sorry to hear about your brother who is struggling with addiction. It can be a difficult and uncertain process for a person to recover from drugs and alcohol, that’s for sure.

The reality is that there is no “mandatory” drug rehab centers that will lock you down during the course of treatment. The closest thing to it is court-ordered treatment, which even then often times a person can leave if they want to but will then be in violation of the courts.

If your brother REALLY wants to get clean and sober than he must be willing to do the work. He should look at his past experiences in rehab and see what it is about either himself or the facility or the type of approach used that caused him to leave. Some rehabs are like military camps, others are in relaxing residential settings. Some are very strict and severe, some are more therapeutic and based on the individual’s needs. Your brother should consider what he is getting into before he commits to make sure he can live with his decision, the wrong type of recovery approach can make someone not want to get sober. Believe me, I know that personally.

Hope this helps, good luck with your brother.

    Hi, I want you to know that I acknowledge your courage to reach out for assistance with your brother. What I can share with you is that the only “forced” facility is usually incarceration, and that is NOT the place to get the healing he deserves.

    My good friend struggled for years, just like your brother, he would go into and out of treatment centers. It was not until he found a facility that was able to address the “cause” of his using drugs, and not just focus on the “drugs” themselves as the issue that he was able to begin the process of healing.

    You see, we ALL create our own reality and environment based on how we see ourselves, our value and self worth ect. So it is not our external world that makes up our internal world, but the other way around. Hope this makes sense, I did not get it until I went to a family day at the center he was at and it was very clearly explained.

    Don’t give up, and tell your brother the same thing. If he is willing to take another deep look then you may be interested in this place.

    God Bless and good luck to you
