How to Help Your Friend or Family Member With Their Addiction

When someone you care about is suffering from an addiction, it can be a confusing, overwhelming, and overall difficult time. The most important thing that you can do for your friend or family member is simply just to be there for them.

It’s important to listen to them, accept them and understand what they are going through, validate their thoughts and feelings, and try your best to be understanding.

Going through addiction can be a very lonely and terrifying time for the person who is suffering. When someone is an addict, they will often struggle to come to terms with their addiction and may be living in denial about it.

Having someone to talk to about their addiction can help them realise they have an addiction and come to terms with the fact that they need professional help. They may need help in realising that they can recover from their addiction.

When you support someone with an addiction, it can be very tough at times. However, there is a lot of help out there if you do a little bit of research.

You may even find that there are some local support groups in and around Chippenham that you can attend to gather some ideas on how to help your friend or family member further.

It’s important to focus on building up trust with this person in your life. When they know that they can trust you, they are more likely to listen to what you have to say. It’s also very important that you’re honest with them. Try to get them to understand how their addiction has been affecting their lives and their relationships with others.

Also, let them know how their addiction has been affecting other people. However, it’s important to remember that you can’t force someone into recovery. Just try to be as supportive as you can and point them in the right direction.

There are some things you should avoid when talking to an addict. Avoid criticizing them as this will just add to their feelings of guilt and shame and may make them become defensive or aggressive.

Never expect immediate change as proper recovery from drugs or alcohol takes time. Finally, do not give them any ultimatums. If you do, this may lead to secrecy and can result in them trying to hide their addiction from you and others.

At Rehab Clinics Group we can offer support for those looking to stage a drug or alcohol addiction intervention. Contact us for more information on 03301 596 494.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long are rehab programmes?

    Typically, rehab programmes usually take around 28 days – that programme includes drug or alcohol detox. Some people can afford to stay in rehab longer and programmes can run up to 12 weeks or longer in some facilities, depending on the severity of the drug or alcohol addiction. What is important is that you pick the programme that suits your circumstances and recovery goals.
  • What is relapse prevention planning?

    During your time in treatment, you will have gained the knowledge and coping skills to help you identify your triggers and become aware of when you might be at risk of relapse. Attending aftercare support meetings, setting short-term goals and taking care of yourself are key aspects of any successful relapse prevention plan.
  • How to achieve long-term sobriety?

    Getting through rehab and regularly attending support meetings is the backbone of maintaining sobriety. The sense of structure and routine around attending meetings will help anchor the new sober life you find yourself in. Taking good care of yourself physically and mentally, avoiding potential triggers and environments and setting short-term goals are all tools someone can use to help them through a sober life.
