It’s not an easy topic to bring up, and you may be met with denial or anger. Yet when families care enough to step in and be persistent even when their suggestion is met with hostility and lies, they may be saving their loved one’s life.
Prepare yourself for the conversation by planning what you are wanting to say. Be clear and assertive whilst remaining calm and caring. When your loved one is safely in recovery, we encourage families to participate in a family program, where they can work through the stress and pain that addiction has caused.
