Thank you again, Danae, for all your additional information,
Since your late mother's home was also the residence of you brothers, then you must treat them as tenants and go through eviction proceedings. But, the good aspect of this is that the Superior Court has expedited hearings and once the Judge awards you possession, you will have the Sheriff who will remove them for you, if necessary. I have described the steps below, if that becomes necessary.
If they do not want to go to rehab, but you believe it is necessary in order to save their lives, you can call around to the various rehabs and ask to speak to the Committee, or staff members who do "Interventions". They very often convince the alcoholics and drug users to go to rehab. Interventions are usually done on an emergency basis and you can have an Intervention take place where they live within 36 to 48 hours.
If you choose to evict them, here are the steps that will accomplish this,
The first step in this procedure is to send them written a 3-day "Notice of Demand for Possession" because they are creating a nuisance and waste. If they do not vacate, then you can immediately file a Summons and Complaint with the Superior Court along with a Prejudgment Claim of Right of Possession. This must be served on the Defendants personally, or left at their place of residence with an adult. If they do not file a response within five (5) days, you can enter a default judgment. Once you enter default judgment, the Sheriff can step in and remove them. I realize that this seems a bit harsh, but you have stated that they told you already that they do not intend to leave the property, therefore, you will need the Office of the Sheriff to remove them.
