He has been stealing from my father as well as my aunts. He always lies about everything and has yet to find a job. My parents are suffering way too much. we come from a very wealthy family but now everyone hates my brother who besides this particular sickness is the most kind person i ever known....everyone loves him ( the ones that don't know the story) . Girls call him all the time...." he is a keeper" they say.... but this situation is breaking my family apart and i cant even trust my own brother. I have been researching every possible treatment center but they are all related to drugs... i find nothing about liars and kleptomaniacs...we really want to send him away...for a while...something like a treatment center in Mexico, United States, or Spain... but does anyone know if that is even possible? meaning....one reahab program that does not relate to alcoholism or drugs??? i need my brother to stop his depression or sickness, and to finally be happy! please help!

  • There are a lot of in-patient programs for mental health disorders out there, involuntary committment is usually 72 hours I believe, but if he volunteers to go, he can work with the doctors to determine the best treatment and length of stay, I think it might help. They don't all center around drugs and alcohol. Try searching for nearbye mental health treatment centers, and discuss it with your brother and see how he is feeling, what his own thoughts are inr elation to his behaviour. It could be something more serious, and related to another disorder. I definitely reccomend psychiatric evaluation. My .02
