Drug abuse happens when someone is taking a drug for fun, for a non-medical reason. Drug abuse can lead to physical harm and criminal prosecution.

Where could someone find help to aid a friend with drug abuse and addiction?

The best way is to keep him in a jail so that he could not get drugs from any where this can cure the addicted one .Answer:Like any addiction or self destructive activity you can't do anything, the person has to want to end the addiction himself. Involuntary participation in "cures" or interventions does not work, jails only change the source of supply (and lower the quality), religion doesn't help, enabling the addict until they "find a way out" only prolongs the problem. Support when they are in program voluntarily is the only option.
