Then use it. Use it to help set limits and figure out what is him speaking v. What is his addiction speaking.

Sounds like he needs a lot of resiliency training if willpower is his big issue. Might want to find a program commensurate with the approach you are taking, his resiliency issue, and get a commitment from him with a bit of tough love mixed in that he will give such a rehab a specific amount of time, along with an agreement that he will do OTC UAs while he is with you.

And remind him - lots of people fail rehab, and fail it something like 8 times before getting sober. 8 should not be his goal, but it is a process, and a part of the process.

Btw, getting clean in prison is not fun, nor medically all that helpful. And the rehab offerings are usually 12 step based.
