For Family & Loved Ones

When a family member is struggling with an addiction issue it can be very hard for the people who care about them. It can be agonizing to watch someone we love hurting themselves and others. Anyone who has been in this situation knows that it is very difficult to help someone who is in the center of an addiction issue.

Most often, addicts do not recognize their need for help, and when they do, the attraction to their addiction is so strong that they are powerless to stop. This is because those who are addicted cross a line where the influence of the addiction has become a driving force that is no longer inclined to rational thought. From this point forward, everything that the addicted person thinks, feels, and does, including right minded decision-making and impulse control, is driven by the intense desire to feed their addiction.

Detaching with Love

Detaching with Love

As fear and desperation grows with the worsening behavior of the person who is addicted, family members themselves often behave in highly emotional and inconsistent ways. This only adds to the confusion and can lead to a further breakdown of the good relationship you once had. An important first step for family members and loved ones is to learn how to detach from the behavior of the addict while still loving them as a person. Choosing not to give in to the demands of your addicted loved one does not mean you are abandoning them, but simply establishing important boundaries.
