In brief: Tough one.

If close to this person, have a chance influence.
He or she has to get the message that you are there for them, you care, your not going to enable them, they're r headed down a path that only ends badly. Give them the # of drug rx center for when they are ready--usually when things can't get worse. Drug addiction is extraordinarily hard for those that love them, because cures are the exception.
