My friend is a drug addict person for last 5 years. Last week he told me all his problem that he is in serious condition.And he asked me to help him. His problem was some voices were disturbing his mind about to kill himself. He can’t get rid of these voices. But when without drugs and alcohol the voices were not there.I told him all that voices are because of the heavy dosage of his drugs. Now I trying to bring back his life again.But I don’t know from where should I start this. please give your suggestions for how to get rid this problem.

Appreciate your concern and desire to help your friend. It is very nice of you to feel that you need to help him.
However there are multiple factors on myriad levels playing actively that pushes a person to seek refuge in drugs to cope with inner climate.

There are emotional, psychological reasons, family dynamics....the whole package that makes that person what they are and how they feel within themselves...

Addictions are not difficult to get over, It happens and can happen to your friend, on only one condition that he is done with it, he wants out, he can't help it, but he wants to stop.

That willingness and readiness to make and embrace a change is a deeply personal thing. You can feel bad and want to reach out, but if he is not mentally and emotionally available to the idea of change and freedom that you have, it is of no practical help to him or you

Since you posted, I see there is genuine desire to be able to help...
So I can suggest to you that find and hold the feeling of him finding freedom from addiction within your heart and feel the peace there and coontinue to do so every time you worry about his addiction.

Most people need to touch rock bottom, before they can find their way up. He is doing it.
Look at him and feel in your stomach that he will be alright, he will find his way. We sometimes have to lose our way to find it.

Doing above will be of great help to you and your friend. Worrying about it is not so good for either of you.

He will be alright. Hold this vision for him
Love

You don't say whether he recognises that the problem is attached to the drug taking and if he is therefore willing to give up the drugs.

If so, it sounds like you are looking for help from an established source that deals with this problem.

I assume you are in the UK? If so -

If not, do a google search by entering 'drug addiction help' with the name of your country.

he needs expert help from his local Drug Action team....and maybe even a referral to a psychiatrist. However well meaning, you are not quipped to help him. My concern is mainly for you that in attempting to help you may be put in harms way.

This could be a case of schizophrenia, the voices are a classic symptom of this condition and he should definitely seek the help of a psychiatrist.
Self medication is often a result of mental illness. Please keep yourself safe in this time a trauma.

Well hearing the voices only occurs with the drugs and alcohol....so I am not sure whether schizophrenia applies here does it? Perhaps he is borderline.

I think that this is a psychological issue. Normally such voices drives suicidal tendencies. They convince the people that it is better to end their life rather than to find an alternate solution for their suffering. Has he faced any failure in his life?? Ask him to share his deep emotions. I have heard that voice therapy can help such people who have trouble with inner voice.

This is an oldish thread and it has had no response from the OP.

But If the friend could share his deep emotions he probably wouldn't have resorted to drugs/alcohol to try and blot them out. And to be honest if he can be persuaded to share such feelings it needs to be supported by a professional who will be able to properly help him face and defuse the feelings without harming himself or others. Thats why I and the others who responded were anxious about posters safety. Well meaning compassionate friends trying to help people with drug/psychotic problems can do more harm than good.

I have never heard of voice therapy. Are you are practitioner?

Hii , Ounce1967
I really Appreciate your work and desire to help your friend. It is very nice of you to feel that you are caring about him. However, there are many factors on myriad levels playing. There are may emotional, psychological reasons, family dynamic
So, in my opinion, you must ask their family about any family problem or anything and try to understand their problem in depth with the support of their family. As well as he need to start medication for Mind fresh and yoga it would be helpful for recovery

Hey! I feel very sorry for your friend's situation. I also had a similar situation a year ago. My boyfriend was a drug addict and I had no idea about how to tackle the situation. He was not aware that he was addicted. The first thing I have done was made him realize that he was an addict. Then he felt that he want to get rid of the addiction. I took him to a drug rehab and after the treatment he is fine now. The first thing you have to do is to make him realize that the voices he is hearing is an after effect of the drug he is using. It will take some time but you try hard. Then take him to a rehab and treat him. Good luck my friend.

I will be not so strong with diagnosis especially without seeing a full picture of symptomes. Voices are symptomes not only in schizophrenia.... especially if it is about self harm....

My advice would be 1. To visit a specialist dr and consult, 2. Organise for him good rehab 3. Support him and his effort with all power and soul

You support is very important for him. If person realised that he needs help and accept fact of addiction then it means he asked for help coz he cannot or not able fight alone ... but he feels he needs to fight.

And he must be proud of having you as a friend. Our society living online and virtually lost normal ability to real human communication and this is not good. Even if you will be with him, talking and talking then this is already big help.... loneliness create problems and addiction is not one condition to treat, this is bundle of areas that must get attention and help.
