Untreated bipolar disorder. Why is she snorting while talk and has patches of cuts on leg?

Someone that I m really close to and care about has bipolar that is currently untreated. She was diagnosed with bipolar for a while, she was on medication before, and recieved help before. She no longer have insurance and she cant afford the medications for her bipolar. She used to smoke weed to get a short high to help her with her bipolar but she no longer smokes that. Ever since she quit, she has gotten worse. Right now, shes snorting/taking 9 to 12 pills daily if not more and has a patch of cuts on her leg. Is there any way of helping her? Is there any other way this could be treated?
