Reach Out for Help
So, what is a person to do if he or she recognises some of the signs and symptoms of an addiction in the life of a loved one? The first thing is to call an organisation like ours and ask for help. By asking some very targeted questions and listening to your answers, we can help you get a better idea of what you are dealing with. We can then offer you advice as to how best to proceed.
As just one example, let us assume that our initial consultation suggests your loved one is indeed an addict. One of the options you have is to conduct an intervention. Professional therapists use interventions as a means of motivating addicts to get treatment before they ‘hit rock bottom’. We can give you tips on intervention or recommend you to a therapist who can help you do it.
Contacting us also gives you access to information about all of the treatment options available in your local area. This information is invaluable for such time as your loved one agrees to treatment. Keep in mind that an individual’s consent may be short-lived. It’s important to have all of the information at hand so you are prepared.
