Families with addictive members suffer incredibly.

Too many times I have sat with mothers and fathers, spouses and children who have lost their loved one to addiction. And the person is sitting there. It is no longer the loved one they knew.

Best Wishes,

Families of addiction can learn to influence, not control.

 

The need to control is a tremendous burden that taxes the emotions, mind and spirit because it is impossible to change another. Influence means taking care of self and setting limits for others.

Treatment for addiction is much easier than using drugs and alcohol.

 

At the end, using drugs and alcohol is demeaning, joyless and makes the true person unrecognizable.

Addiction owns the addict. Life becomes fruitless and dreams disappear in deference to the substance. Get out and stay out when you see it.

Best Wishes,

Families can help an addict/alcoholic into treatment.

 

I have experienced much success with addiction by helping the family return to stability and ;leverage' their loved on to treatment. Families are the most powerful influence when guided by a responsible, trained 'coach.'.
