"He's been doing drugs since he was 14; fairly brain-damaging ones since he was about 15 (acid/K/E) "

Well there is no proof after all these years that
acid causes brain damage. The evidence that E causes brain damage is not at all proven. Given that millions have taken it. But:

"- so being that he's 22 now, his poor brain has really been taxed during it's developing stages!"


I would say not taxed, quite the opposite. there is a huge amount of psychological development that
does not take place if you are high all your teenage years. It is a big deficit. You end up with a 20 something adult who has none of the emotional maturity or depth one gets by growing up
and seeing and experiencing life with a clear head.

I agree with the others, drug abuse is most times not a primary condition. It is secondary to a bigger problem; it is a sign of a big problem but not the problem itself.

Of course the psychosis needs to be delt with and he needs to detox and get off drugs. But none of that will really get at the why. Why does he need to be high ? Once he can work on these core issues
there can be hope for recovery. But this work cannot start till he is more mentally stable and not using.
