I'm guessing that it was SHE who found out he was still on drugs ( he must have been very aware of that himself). She needs to face the fact that he is a loser, and a liar, and that she cannot rely on him for anything. If she insists, she can fall in love with her own fantasies of who he mioght have been ( but he isn't) and ignore the reality in front of her, but that never leads to happiness. She's an adult, and entitled to be stupid if she chooses ; all you can do is to advise affectionately, and be around to pick up the pieces.
