To start - None of us really know anything about the situation here beyond the fragments we get from the news - and they are decidedly slanted towards the positive.
The fact is, having a family member spiral into a life of crime and addiction leads the family through a difficult path which includes reaching out, forgiving, etc... But eventually families have to attempt the tough love approach. This can mean you get direct with the person, call them an embarrassment and tell them you are ashamed of them. Not a pleasant process - but it can wake some people up, and make them realise they've reached rock-bottom.

I don't think his mom is a "biotch"...if you`ve ever dealt with a person with drug/alcohol problems---tons of broken and empty promises-you get to point where you say-"let go and let God"--tough love baby....either you continue and be an enabler or you move on with YOUR life.....
