Bandmate Seeks Help for Friend and Drummer

 I am an 18 year old male who started a band a few months ago. My close friend, and drummer, has struggled with drugs his entire life. He is only 19 and has overdosed on fentanyl multiple times, including the other week. He had a really bad upbringing, neglected and abandoned , and he found himself in the wrong crowd, developing very bad habits. He’s lucky to be alive today and is in the hospital right now. He’s very talented and I care about him a lot. How can I help him stay away from bad influences and show him he can win this battle?

Thank you so much.
