How Can I Help My Friend Who Is Already Dependent Into Drugs?

Question by Adrian Cage: How can I help my friend who is already dependent into drugs?
I think he has prescription drugs addiction and he is also an alcohol addict. Is there a way for him to recover from these problems?

Best answer:

Answer by Christie Stephanie
Both prescription drugs and alcohol addiction can be serious and deadly diseases because it destroys the ones health and wellness. I advise that your friend has to undergo a dual diagnosis treatment which I believe takes a long term to finally overcome those addictions.

    having both a prescription drug problem and an alcohol problem is very very deadly and sadly there isn’t much u can do to help him, just remind him of all the people that love him and care for him and hopefully he snaps back to reality

    Come on, abused ? Really ?? Are people scolding, spanking or whipping their medication ? No, They’re using them. If they over dose, they misuse the medication. Stupid term?
