  • Im sorry to say but the only thing that will keep your brother clean is your brother. He has to want it and untill he does he will continue. Good luck too you. I have been on both sides of addiction and its a long hard road.

  • Go to a bookstore and check out the chemical dependent section,they have some good ones.I would give him a mans journal,so he could write down his feelings about why he wants to do drugs and buy him a fancy pen with it,one that's good for writing and all this will help him stay clean.

  • If he is a believer in Jesus Christ as his personal savior then the BIBLE is the best book for him. Other than that there are some really good books at www.nogreaterjoy.org that may be of some help. I would also suggest some herbals that I know about if you are interested. Also a good christian friend that is staying clean to lean on would be good.

  • I know just the place for you to go to. www.reformu.com
    On there they have many many different biblical tools for getting and keeping your life CLEAN! NOT JUST CLEAN FROM DRUGS ALTHOUGH THEY CERTAINLY HAVE THAT.. AND NOT JUST CLEAN FROM ALCOHOL OR WHAT EVER YOUR OTHER VICES ARE.. BUT FOR YOUR MIND, BODY AND SOUL... WHAT A WONDERFUL PROGRAM.
    AND YES... THE BIBLE IS THE FIRST BOOK BUT THE REFORMER BOOKS.. ARE TO BE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE BIBLE SO IT IS A UNIFIED FRONT.. GOOD LUCK
