Hi, Drug addiction is a very difficult phase and giving up on it completely is even more difficult. There are medications which can help reduce his withdrawal symptoms and cravings. I would suggest you get a second opinion from another psychiatrist and also try rehab centers. Depending on the severity of the addiction and his determination of quitting drugs a treatment plan can be devised and he probably might not necessarily need to go to rehab. Also, his support system and environment would play a very crucial part to help him get over his addiction.
