Someone like that wouldn't want to feel attacked but more like babysat from my experience. Attacking them just makes them feel like doing it more because of the stress they experience.

Yeah I agree with your approach. His mom has no clue that he is the way he is. She has caught him smoking dope as a kid but that's about it. I am sure he does not want to stress her out or make her worry for she is sick herself (not drug related).
He also cant get official help for he actually helps people indirectly who are in his situation himself! So he would lose his job if anyone found out. Kind of s#itty how the US deals with drug addiction and how US families have been conditioned to respond to drug abuse. I am thinking one alternative is for him to try out the ibogaine treatment in Mexico. Supposedly can help withdrawal in just 48 hours.
