How to help someone who asked for help but will no longer talk to you

Not sure how I help. They asked me to help them. I got very angry as them because of a previous circumstance involving them and now they’re unresponsive to my messages. I can’t visit them at home because the whole family is on drugs and they won’t let new inside
Emma B In my experience, when someone has asked me for help and then become unresponsive, they typically will come back around. Continue to reach out and let them know you are there for them when they are ready for help. If possible- create a group text with other friends or family that want to see this person get better, and you can all reach out together to let this person know that there is no shame in asking for help and you are all concerned and are here to support him/her
