You cannot help an addicted person until they are ready to help them self and ADMIT they have a problem.

Eventually the family must realize this and completely dissociate or they enable and continue the cycle.

I lost someone close to me due to cocaine abuse. But you cannot force a person to change. Give them the choice of drugs or you and it is drugs every time.

Most addicts get hooked when they are very young. They are experimenting and don't realize the danger.
Look back at yourself at the age of 18 or even 20. Were you thinking clearly at that age? Many of us were subject to peer pressure that led us to do some stupid things.
The only course I see to eradicate the drug scourge ravaging our society is "Death To The Pusher" laws. Anyone selling or giving illegal drugs to a minor is subject to the death penalty.
It would drive up the cost of drugs to the point that only the very rich could afford them, and I am not concerned about the welfare of the elite rich.
Death to the Pusher is not going to catch on very soon but it is an idea whose time may come.
