In brief: Sometimes
You are allowed to attend classes or meetings with them if they choose you to be there.
Also always be aware that there addiction needs to be considered in the future when planning events. Don't make it obvious, as this will alienate that individual but be aware about where/what you might be doing with this person. Sometimes even slight enticement can be an issue for this person in the future.

In brief: Yes
Absolutely yes. Be supportive, encourage them, never leave them alone, if help is needed then take them to appropriate professional.
Get them to support groups and both of you get into religion.
