In brief: Smoking oxys

Smoking Oxycodone carries the same risk and difficulties as abuse oh any narcotic Unfortunately you will not be able to help him till he is ready to be helped when he is ready he should see a board certified addictionologist He can find one by googling American Board of Addiction Medicine

In brief: Narcanon

He's clearly very addicted if he's graduated to smoking.
He's risking lung damage from the smoking. If he starts injecting he's at risk for infections including HIV and hep c. You should consider going to Narcanon to help you deal with your reaction to his addiction
