My 15 yr old nephew needs help!
My nephew is going down a very wrong path and we need to help him before it’s too late, but not sure what options we have. He’s only 15, and has a bad set of friends who he goes out with and doesn’t come home until 3am or next day. His parents have found drugs on him and he seems to be high a lot of times. His parents have tried their hardest to set rules on going out or even cutting all his privileges, but it doesn’t stop him. He just leaves and finds other ways to get it. His poor parents are so stressed and spend a lot of sleepless nights crying and worrying where he is or what will happen to him. What can we do if he doesn’t want help or agree to it? He only fears the police, so can the police give him a scare or something? Are there any programs out there like boot camp that will force him into change? It has to be something harsh and forced as he will not cooperate otherwise. Need some solid advise without judgements and finger pointing please. I know this kid since he was 2 and want that sweet boy back 🙁 Thank you so much
