You have to do all that you can to get him out of it.
(skill), s(strength), (love); with love, skill and through some force, somehow, you must help him to get out of it.
The best thing is to put them in a rehabilitation home. There are many other rehabilitation centers all over. Take him to such a center, make him do the Sudarshan Kriya. If he learns the and , it makes a big difference. Many people have left drugs and alcohol when practicing the Sudarshan Kriya.

One needs to have a proper mindset to come out of poverty. And I tell you, it is more self-inflicted, rather than someone getting into it with a victim consciousness. People say, ‘I am a victim, somebody has money, I don’t have it!’

- There should be a real need to have whatever it is you want. Our wants keep changing, but if it is our need, we will get it. The want has to become our need.

If you plant a pomegranate tree today and say, ‘No, I want the fruit now!’ Come on, you have to wait for another three years! The pomegranate tree will give you fruit only in two to three years. So, time or karma is a factor.
