    I can't force treatment on an adult that is in his right mind. If I feel an adult close to me needs treatment, how can I convince them?

    Is that adult aware of his addiction? And does he want to change it but is unable to? Or does he like his addiction?
    Be more specific because in the last case, it's next to impossible to treat that adult.
