Most of us either know someone who is struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, or we may be struggling with an addiction ourselves. How do we approach someone we love that has an addiction? How do we tell someone we need help with an addiction?
Addiction creates so much confusion in the addict/alcoholic’s mind that it can be very difficult to talk to them. If we are struggling with an addiction, it is difficult to step out of denial and admit that we have a problem.
Please use this space to share some effective ways you have reached out for help or have helped someone struggling with addiction. Some examples that previous readers have suggested when reaching out to an addict/alcoholic are:
Be nice and supportive
Listen as much as you talk
Show unconditional love
Support the process of change
Seek information on where to get help
Always let an addict know your limits
