Yes, it is possible to help a drug addict. The first step is often to encourage them to seek professional help, such as addiction treatment at a rehab facility or counseling with a therapist. You can also offer emotional support and encourage them to attend support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous. It’s important to be non-judgmental and patient, and to avoid enabling their addiction. Ultimately, the decision to seek help and recover from addiction is up to the individual, but support from loved ones can make a significant difference.
