question for a friend

I have a friend whos S/O and father of her child is an active addict.
Recently she ending up asking him to leave the home because of the continued drug use.

So once out of the house due to continued drug use......how would one best address contact with the child?

A. tell dad he can only have phone calls with the child until he seeks treatment and maintains recovery?

B. meet dad a the park for play time with the child?

or C any other recommendations or advice?

On one hand you dont want to punish the child but on the other how good for him is it to see dad for a few hours but dads not doing anything to get better, and dad actually says he used the night before and didnt have a penny left of his paycheck to help the mom with the childs expenses?????

thanks any imput would be great
