In brief: With medical help

Withdrawal from drugs can be very dangerous, most counties have detox facillities.
- enlisting the aid of addiciton professionals can help provide some guidance, the safest way to withdraw is under medical supervision. The hard part is the next step, acknowledgin a problem and engaging in treatment. Making assistance dependent on their getting help is often good strategy and avoids codependency.
