It won't be a secret then
Of course you should. That stuff could kill him and he clearly needs help.
That is pretty much a question that a professional would answer. Rule of thumb is to determine if the secret is harmful to anyone, including the individual. In this case, it would probably be wise to do so. It might save a life.<br />
Do what your conscience says to do
if he really likes ur frndshp, tell him dat he wil miss ur frndshp in future bcoz of dat addiction. that is better choice
I know some people who's families would disown them over information like that. <br />
Personally I was kicked out of my parents house for trying drugs at 17, and was homeless for a while because of it. <br />
It's all sorted now, but telling someone's family may not be the best option. You know them and their family better than I do though.
A drug like heroin, it's not like a "I was in a party once, and some guy offered" drug. It's not something you "do" coz you were drunk or pressured.
He probably has other issues, that led him to where he is. If you can address that issue, the drugs may not be such an important thing to him as a release.
I wish you luck in your endeavour either way. I hope your friend gets the help he needs, without ending up just getting driven further away from his family.
Don't let him push you out though, he's told you because he wants YOU to know. And he knew before he said how you'd want to react, this may be the first step to him wanting help.
If you are a true friend...yes.
No, that way you can go to his funeral sooner.
I would suggest you first tell him you think he should stop (if that is the case), then ask if he agrees he needs help to do that. If he agrees then you are fine, if not, then I think you still have the right to tell his family, having first warned him.
Does he want to die? Does he know how dangerous it is? If you can't help him yourself then you should tell them.
Pretty sure his family knows something is wrong already. Talk to them to get insight on how to help him
