If he is addicted, he will have withdrawal symptoms. The extent of reaction will depend on how long he has been using the substances and what dosages is he on. It is best for him to visit a doctor who will determine these for him. Even if he does not experience physical withdrawal, he can feel the psychological symptoms and that can be quite disturbing too. Ideally, he will need both counseling and medication or detoxification to quit this habit.
