For every behaviour there is a reason behind it. Try to understand the reason and help him to come out of that behaviour.
OR otherwise, take him to Counsellor /Psychologist if not in ur town to go the city and consult there. It would definitely help him and lead a better life.

This person needs to meet a psychiatrist and discuss his problem.
Health Tips
The earlier it is done, the better because a percentage of these patients may contemplate attempting suicide... Early action can save a potentially productive life.
