Get him to a doctor.
by: Debbie Wicker

Yabba is called meth or methamphetamine here in the US. Withdrawal from it can have very negative side effects and symptoms. Try getting him to a doctor and, based on his symptoms, the doctor can prescribe medications to help manage the negative issues from his withdrawal. The doctor may prescribe anti-psychotics as required.

Also, have your friend start attending AA or NA meeting online and working the 12-step program. The 12 steps have helped many, many overcome their addictions.

As far was what he should eat, good health meals will make his recovery easier.

Good luck,

Debbie
