Not much you can do if your boyfriend doesn't want to get clean. Other than confronting him and supporting his efforts to get clean, you have to make sure you don't enable him. Let him suffer the consequences of his behavior in other words. He will stumble and you need to let him suffer the results so he learns to stay clean. Here are some sites for you to read about helping a loved one through addiction:
You are young and really need the help of someone more experienced. I recommend you try to get to some Narcotics Anonymous meetings. You can google this to find meetings near your location. They have a sister program called Nar Anon for loved ones of the addicted. Again you can google "Nar anon" and find meetings near you. Here you will learn how not to enable your boyfriend and how to help him.
We are here to support you and am willing to help anyway I can,
