My Best Friend Is Addicted to Methadone :(?

Question by Miley: my best friend is addicted to methadone :(?
He’s been my best friend since 1999 so I don’t want to give up on him, but his addictions are getting the best of him these days. He is not perscribed the Methadone. He gets it from a connection of his and he snorts it a long with his Klonopin. He says that he can take or leave the Methadone anytime he wants and he isn’t addicted, but he snorts that stuff every few hours. He’s been on it for three weeks now and has recently developed problems that include difficulty breathing, trouble urinating, speech problems, puking, and so on. How can I get him to kick his habit? Why won’t he listen to me and realize that stuff is bad for him? Has anyone ever died while on Methadone? Please give me all the info you can so I can make a thorough list and show it to him. Maybe then he will clean up his act.
