What Can You Do to Help a Drug Addict to Help Themselves?

Question by Nina: What can you do to help a drug addict to help themselves?
Do you take away their phone? do u just leave them alone if they are not listening? how do you treat them? do you show them love or punish them for being irresponsible, since you think its because of the drugs? for example if the person does not come home for 2 days and then comes and is very out of it and the whole time he was not answering ur phone calls. and he says some things that does not make sense. what do i do?
