This has been going on for a couple of months and he has already become addicted. He has a persecution mania. He believes that he is being followed. When he calls on the phone, his speech is confused and I don't understand him. If someone was in such a situation, what did you do?

Maybe if you can catch him at just the right time of his trip, he will sign his own commitment forms?

Addiction/Mental Illness does not discriminate.

Look up local Community Behavioural Health Services and find out what programs they offer that might address his issues. They will not force him into treatment and he cannot be committed to an institution unless he is a danger to himself or others. Abusing substances alone is not a commitable activity.

Be prepared to give him info on his options when he is ready.

You are a good friend but you are not responsible for getting him clean.
