Hi, I have a friend that has been taking Levodopa

Hi, I have a friend that has been taking Levodopa for RLS. She has increased her dose to every three hours. She has recently seen a neurologist and he advised her to quit. She is addicted to the med and she cannot stop it. How do we help her to over come the addictions?
