Advice for a drug addict not to relapse

Q: We have a family member that is on drugs. Please can you advise us further on the Islamic method to help the member out. Also, is there any wazifa we can read to get through this difficult time? Is there a wazifa to help the addict not relapse? The addict has admitted and willing to get all the possible help. We are making lots of dua to Allah for help.

A: We do not know of any wazeefa. Ask him to be punctual on his fard salaah and after each salaah, he should make dua begging Allah Ta'ala to forgive him and rid him of this wrong habit. Similarly, he should ensure that he refrains from wrong company and all things that will incite him and tempt him towards the sin. He should refer to some pious aalim or shaikh and seek guidance from him. He should remain under his supervision and should not do anything without consulting him.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
