i don't have problems, i have issues
problems can be fixed, issues you just deal with
"The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. Fences have nothing to do with it.
The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be."

... Yes, he needs drug intervention, counseling, enforced rules around the house.
If things are still not going smooth around him even if you already did try drug intervention, counseling and strict enforcement of the rules in your house, why not consider military boarding school coz I think that's what he really needs. Some serious discipline and a long term rehab like therapy and not only that, he will be able to continue his education.

"Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day."

This may be a bit extereme, but would you be interested in having him come live with you, so that you have some authority to demand that he get treatment, go to church etc? That seems the only way that you could actually have control over it???
I have thought of this, for both him and my sister (13). We live with very modest means, but we do have the room in our house.
A little update for the overall situation. He still hasn't written the apology letter. I've talked to him about it twice. The last time was a month before Christmas, I told him I really want him to come over Christmas morning, but he needs to write the letter first. Christmas is in three days and still no letter. Things have been very.... interesting at my parents house. I guess my dad cancelled Christmas. No one gets anything because they don't deserve it. *sigh* my dad is extreme. No consequences for so long, then this. I have a feeling part of this is stress from not having any money. A basic look at their financial situation is that their SSI checks are about 1500 a month. Their rent is 1300 (high rent area, includes a warehouse for my dads stuff he sells... but he hasn't been selling). They get food stamps, so that covers the majority of food costs though not all. My father does have a way of making some extra money but it hasn't been panning out lately. The last two months they've been borrowing money from me until they get their SSI checks. I can't loan them money anymore though because an other family member got stuck out of state, just started a job and had no place to live (sleeping in car in the snow) so I loaned him money to get a room to rent. Of course, the rule is, don't loan money to family that you have to have back anytime soon. SO, I'm strapped to the max financially, but still ok.
My brother is failing a few of his classes. He's been skipping class. He's been smoking pot. He has a nice little knife collection and I know he brings them to school with him sometimes. If he did come live with me, I worry more about how it will affect the other kids more than about the stealing. At least my sister is able to come over every weekend.
