My Approach to Helping
When addiction takes over your loved one's life you don't know what to do. You want to help them so much but nothing seems to be working. You wonder when the tears will stop, when the worrying will stop. You wonder if you will ever get them back. 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?
You imagine your life with less stress, and less worry. You imagine having more time for yourself, your other family members, and feeling more focused on the positive things in your life (and less worried about the negatives). Your loved one might get better, or not, but at the end of the day, you know you have done everything in your power to help them.
