You will probably need to run a snake down the drain to remove whatever is clogging the drain. Some snakes have a camera on them so you can see what is causing the clog. Sometimes roots can grow into the pipes and ruin them.

Expensive way: hire a plumber. Cheap, maybe not effective: use drain cleaner liquid. Cheap and probably effective: rent the machine that plumbers use to clear clogged drains. Go through your main sewer pipe. Be sure you have enough length to reach all the way to the pipes in the street.
