What Will a Doctor Do When Notified of a Patients Prescription and Other Drug Abuse?

Question by k f: What will a doctor do when notified of a patients prescription and other drug abuse?
My sister is heavily addicted to her prescription drugs (fentanyl patch, xanax, and other assorted pain pills) along with bathsalts and meth. I called her doctor and informed them of her addiction because I am worried about the drugs interacting with each other. Does the doctor have to stop prescribing that stuff once informed of a problem or did I waste my breath informing them?
