1st probation violation

My friend is on probation after serving 9 mos for cocaine possession with intent to distribute. He did very well with probation up until a several months ago when he became involved with drugs again. He ended up admitting himself to a detox center and has been clean ever since. However, now he has violated his probation by not showing up and doing drugs again. He wants to turn himself in, but is scared he will get jail time. He wants to make a go of a normal life, but can't with this hanging over his head. What are his chances of going back to jail? He doesn't mind extended probation or anything else he might have to do (just doesn't want jail time). All his fines are paid off, also. Thanks for your help.
