Hey, I need some advise on what to do about my Uncle. He’s addicted to crystal meth, and has type two diabetes. He isn’t taking care of his diabetes, and is not doing well health wise at all. We all suspect he will die with in a month or two. He refuses treatment. He is currently living with his mom and dad.His dad was just diagnosed with cancer and his mom has Alzheimer’s and her condition is getting worse very quickly so we’ve decided to move them closer to family so they’re taken care of properly.
We’re not sure how to move them with my uncle there. Since meth addicts can get very violent, and we will be taking his income away (he takes all of his parents money, since his mom never remembers and his dad doesn’t want him getting violent) which will surely upset my uncle a great deal. We live in Canada, are there any mental health facilities or rehabs in or around Ontario, that will take someone in without their consent? Also, does the person to commit said person, have to be a parent, or can they be a sibling, cousin, etc?
Also we are open to calling the police to take him if it is necessary.
Thanks so much for any help you can offer.
