Often times, a drug or alcohol addiction can tear relationships and families apart and putting the pieces back together can be very challenging and difficult. Luckily, there is a lot of professional help and support out there for the addicts and their families and friends.
You can help your loved one in many ways by educating yourself on the stages of addiction recovery and learning about their specific addiction type. The more knowledge that you have, the more power you will have when lending your help and unconditional support.
Allowing yourself to step out of the box and try to relate to and understand your loved one and their addiction will help them tremendously. If your loved one feels as if they have someone they can talk to and rely on, then they will be more likely to agree to seek professional help, so offer your assistance as much as possible.
