You've made a really solid suggestion by bringing up support. You're also right-- you can't force him. But you can still go and establish a circle of support and I'd strongly suggest doing it before he comes home if he plans to "do it on his own".

Some people feel like 12 step groups are full of junkies and drunks and isn't that who I'm trying to stay away from? The problem with that thinking is that it allows them to keep a nice distance from accountability and helps them to stay in denial if they chose to go there.

Will he have parole or probation to contend with? They may require it or another program whether he wants to or not.
