What Are the Best Ways to Support Through Addiction?
How can I help my loved one through the trials of addiction? If you’re like millions of Americans and Canadians who have a loved one who is battling addiction, it can be very hard to know how to handle it—as well as how to help them. You may feel powerless, but there are things you can do to help. Your loved one does not have to be alone when facing the threat of addiction, relapse, or overdose. You can be a powerful resource for them, as well as providing guidance as they make progress on their journey to recovery.

Affirming Your Loved One
One of the most powerful ways that you can help your son, daughter, husband, wife, brother, or sister with drug addiction is with your words and actions. Remember to practice acceptance. That does not mean that you approve or condone their addictive behaviour, but that you are not fighting with them either. Instead, express to them that when they are ready for help, you’re there for them, but that you won’t finance or enable their addictive behaviours. Stress that you will support them in their quest for recovery. By staying out of their dramas, and by having your own sound mind, you can help make sure that your loved one knows that they’re not isolated, and that you’re really on their side. Family members and loved ones of alcoholics or addicts are encouraged to learn about the illusion of control experienced by their loved in addiction, and to find their own support in Al-Anon or Nar-Anon.

Encourage Drug Rehab
But, of course, there are things that you can’t help with. That’s why drug rehab is so important. By encouraging your loved one to seek rehab and drug treatment, you’re making sure that they’re in good hands—experts who know how to take care of them. Drug rehab is really the best solution for your loved one to continue to make progress toward recovery. Make sure that you help them choose a high-quality rehab center with a high standard of care.
