I am so sorry about your cousin's problem and since I live in America, I can't advise where to go in Asia. My son was an addict for years and he turned to Buddhism and he died a Buddhist with all the high prayers given to a fellow Buddhist. Be almost grateful that this experience has happened to him, it scared the hell of him. Don't hammer the addiction at him, he just slipped and got a high teaching. You say you live in Asia so you must live in a Buddhist country, go to a monastery and take him with you. Let him become a monk for a while, now that is great disapline in itself. If I remember correctly, in some countries in Asia one doesn't have to take a vow for life. Just a suggestion.
