My Approach to Helping
Loving someone who uses drugs or alcohol is very hard. We see so many good things inside of them and don’t want to lose them to the sickness that is addiction. For some of us, that means sacrificing our time, our money, and ourselves, trying to help them stay sober. But what about us? What about you? I had a family member who died due to substance use issues. I have seen how drugs and alcohol can hurt not just the person with the addiction but also their family.
Imagine what it would be like if things were a little less chaotic. If you could worry less. If you started to focus on taking care of yourself again. You’re happier and less stressed. You might even be able to sleep better at night. Your loved one might still struggle with alcohol or drugs, or they might get the help that they need to stay sober either way you are better able to cope with everything and provide them with the type of support they really need.
