The Queens Park Rangers midfielder has offered the Moroccan his help.
And he has also recommended him to conditioning coach Steve Black.
On Twitter, Barton discussed the need for 'even the strongest amongst us' to ask for a hand during tough times.
Taarabt has hardly played for QPR this season and was recently accused of being too unfit and too unwilling to train by Rs boss Harry Redknapp.
The Moroccan then hit back at his manager but chairman Tony Fernandes condemned both in a later public statement.
Now, Barton says he will give Taarabt 'all the time he needs.'
I am going to do my upmost with Adel. I will give him all the time he needs. Time to get him back to his best @B1ackie— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) October 23, 2014
A lot of people have helped me a long in my journey. I would never have been doing what I was without their help.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) October 23, 2014
Even the strongest amongst us need a hand at times. Many people have lent me a hand, it's vital to reciprocate that.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) October 23, 2014
Barton himself has been injured lately and QPR host Aston Villa at Loftus Road on Monday.
A win would do the west London side no end of good but points seem very hard to come by these days for the struggling Rs.
And it says a lot that one of their midfielders is currently showing more leadership than both their manager and chairman combined when it comes to sorting out a fellow player.
