1. Don't bail him out next time he's arrested, sounds like he needs some quality jail time

I know nobody wants that, but sometimes you just have to let someone find their bottom.

A decent amount of time cooling your heels and sobering up in Jail ... tends to be 'bottom' for a lot of folks.

Although ... homelessness often also works ... You really can't help anyone until they WANT help, and significant suffering is usually the instigator of someone coming around in that way.
