How can you stop someone from doing drugs when they are so addicted they are close to death?
You need to get them arrested to start with.
Then the police will decide what to do with the person next.
There at such a drugged up state that they don't realize that they've become stupid. You could tell when someone becomes a tweaker. The tweaker can't. When you tell them they need help, they think there fine...but there eyes are halfway shut and they think there fine. Rehab centers only take them if they are willing. He is dying in front of my eyes and I can't do anythinng!
This question is very sad.
It is difficult to watch a loved one 'kill' themself with drug use, leaving you helpless. Unfortunately, there isn't a good answer for how you can stop them. Unfortunately, you cannot make a person stop. They have to want to stop using drugs.
I know this is not what you want to hear, but it is true. One way that you can make them want to stop is by expressing your own thoughts and feelings about your loved one's drug abuse. Have you had a heart-to-heart with the person? Have you told them how their drug abuse has affected your life?
This approach may work- making them realize how it is destroying, not only their own life, but the lives of everyone around them. They may not realize what they are doing to everyone else. They may think that they are only ruining their own life.
You can't stop anyone from doing anything. You can only suggest options. Leave literature lay around about support groups. All you really can do is assure them there is another way out of the mess they are in.
I can't help but think that your question displays a feeling of desperation on your part; a loved one or someone else close to you. It's tough. But please don't forget about yourself. Don't allow that person's addiction become your addiction. What I mean is, don't become co-dependent. It's easy to do. But if this person continues their usage to the point of dying, you are going to feel that you failed and that you are responsible. YOU ARE NOT!
Just let them know that you love and care for them and you want them around for a long time. The rest is up to them and it is out of your control. Good Luck.

Do you feel sorry for a Drug Addict?It is never always the same for anyone. A drug addict can be picked on or won't be judged at all. Do you think a drug addict is a weak person for turning to such a bad habit?
