My 18 year old brother has been having problems with Xanax on and off for, as far as I know, almost a year. He’ll take one, be completely incoherent and barred out for several hours. It scares the hell out of my mom, he’s gotten in trouble at work, wrecked my parents car... etc. I say on and off because it seems like he’ll take one (or however many) be out of his mind for like a day or two, then seem fine for a couple of weeks. But who knows how often he really does it. He is incredibly stubborn and has bad anger issues. My family is terrible at addressing problems and talking about uncomfortable things, me included. None of us know what to do. My mom is terrified, my dad ignores it, and me and my brother have tried to talk to him but neither of us really know what to say/he doesn’t ever want to talk to us. If anyone has any advice or anything I welcome all stories and help. I’m worried about my little brother and I don’t want my mom to keep going through this. Thank you.
