Hearing voices and refuses meds

User Profile
I have a 30 yr old son,who has been incarcerated 81/2 yrs. of his life off and on. He is an addict. In 2007 I noticed he was hearing voices, he thinks someone is watching him. I have tried to comfort him in every way I know how, but nothing works. He is a christian man and believes what he believes no way to convince him otherwise. He no longer does drugs and refuses to do any for his condition. I wish I knew what to do for him. It hurts so bad to be so helpless.
