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.
