There's usually not much you can do to help someone, someone you love, if they refuse or are not ready to help themselves. He is an adult, and he needs to seek out help when he has hit his own personal bottom.

It's very sad for the family of addicts when this happens; but it's important for your folks (and for you) to set strict boundaries and stick to them, even though it may be painful. ie. if he's stolen from you parents, your parents shouldn't be letting him back in the house; or they could call the police; he'd be furious at first, but this is not him, it's his addiction.

Al-Anon, Narc-anon - Go with you family and learn how to be the family of an addict; don't see anything wrong with encouraging him to get help; but that's up to him

Take care,
