How can social anxiety disorder be treated?

The person I am talking about is 37 yrs old. He is a classic case of social anxiety disorder. He graduated but never could find a job. He spends all day inside his room with door locked. He whispers a lot. He laughs often but without a single sound. He has to be spoken to at least 3 times before the message gets to him for few seconds. HE NEVER TALKS to anyone and has no friends. If I am trying to get him some help I don t know where to start.
