Question Riverbend: Drug addiction

Hi all,

My brother has been at Riverbend about a year now and he's always talked about how bad the meth problem is there. Well, he's finally given in and he's on.. something. I don't think it's meth based on how he sounded on the phone (mellow vs amped up) but I worry it's opiods. Does anyone know if there's anything we can do about it? Someone to tell?

He's been demanding money be sent to random strangers outside to fund his habit. His wife and I said no, of course, but then he's become a complete asshole, threatening us and, frankly, making things up. I worry he's delusional or had some kind of break either from the drugs or from the withdrawal when he couldn't get more. We're at a loss as to what the best thing to do here is.

Hello and Welcome to PTO. I moved your thread over to this forum because it's more about your loved one's addiction than it is about prison.

Since your brother is locked up, I doubt if there is much you can do about what he is doing inside the prison. Right now you are doing the best thing you can do by not funding his habit. Other than that, I think you may have to let this play out the way it's going to play out with him on the inside.
