Best Answer

The best way is to keep him in a jail so that he could not get drugs from any where this can cure the addicted one .


Like any addiction or self destructive activity you can't do anything, the person has to want to end the addiction himself. Involuntary participation in "cures" or interventions does not work, jails only change the source of supply (and lower the quality), religion doesn't help, enabling the addict until they "find a way out" only prolongs the problem. Support when they are in program voluntarily is the only option.

How do you get through to a drug addict so they will want to quit?

There is no way to get through to a drug addict. You can talk to them. Ask them to get help, but until they want to get the help. If you are a parent or a spouse of an addict there are programs available to help you get through being part of an addicts life. You can call your local NA program listed in the phone book and ask about programs for family members like parents, spouse, even for children and see if they have any.
