When individuals become stuck in a pattern of ongoing, problematic use of drugs or alcohol to the point that it begins to hinder their ability to function appropriately on a daily basis, they are likely suffering from a substance use disorder. Despite the known detriments that addictions to drugs and alcohol can impose on an individual’s life, unfortunately, there are many who remain caught in the tortuous cycle of substance abuse. When individuals are suffering from addictions, they quickly replace things that were once priorities with the acquisition and consumption of their drugs of choice. In doing so, they are causing monumental disruption in not only their lives, but in the lives of their loved ones as well.
At Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab, we recognize the tremendous devastation that addictions can elicit, yet we also realize how difficult overcoming a battle with drugs or alcohol can be. For this reason, we are proud to have created specialized programming options that are designed to help individuals put their addictions to rest once and for all. At Duffy’s, we do not judge people for struggling with addictions, but instead, we empower them by giving them the tools they need to achieve a life of sobriety.
Helping a Loved One or Family Member Get Treatment
If you have a friend or loved one who is struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, you likely experience much worry on a daily basis. Besides being concerned for the health and wellbeing of your loved one, you may also feel extremely frustrated, or even resentful, towards him or her for placing him or herself is such a perilous position. By gaining an understanding of the disease of addiction, however, you can overcome such frustrations and resentment and, instead, become a guiding force in assisting your loved one in getting the help that he or she needs. The following are a few examples of things that you can do to make a positive intervention in your loved one’s life:
- Research the signs, symptoms, and effects of an addiction to the specific substance or substances that your loved one is abusing. Additionally, learn about the potential signs of overdose and devise a plan for how to handle such a situation should it occur.
- Inquire about various treatment interventions that have proven effectiveness in helping individuals successfully combat addictions. Reading books, searching the internet, and reaching out to sources within the community can all be wonderful ways in which to obtain information that can help you determine which treatment interventions may be of most benefit to your loved one.
- Engage your loved one in an open and honest conversation where you express your fears and concerns, while also allowing him or her to share his or her own thoughts and feelings. Go into the conversation realizing that it is very possible that your loved one will respond negatively and may become angry and/or defensive. Remain calm and patient. Be persistent, yet refrain from passing judgment on your loved one.
- Present your loved one with the research you have done regarding possible treatment interventions. Assist him or her in finding a treatment center that will best meet his or her needs. Offer your support by offering to contact the center for him or her, or by accompanying him or her to any appointments that may be scheduled.
- If your loved one does make the brave decision to receive treatment, be a beacon of support throughout the entire process. Help make accommodations to alleviate any hindrances that may prevent him or her from being able to fully engage in treatment. This can include things such as helping to arrange for child care, providing transportation, or helping take care of daily responsibilities around the home.
- Be an active part of your loved one’s treatment process. If made available, attend any family sessions or support groups. This will show your loved one that he or she is not alone. Additionally, consistently check in with your loved one to see how he or she is doing, as well as to demonstrate your ongoing love, support, and encouragement.
Why Consider Treatment at Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab
Receiving treatment for a substance abuse problem can often mean the difference between life and death. Individuals who are struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol are consistently in a perilous position of suffering from countless negative detriments as a result of their actions. Their physical and mental health is constantly in jeopardy as the abuse of substances can result in irreversible cognitive impairment, heart damage, lung damage, failure of vital organs, contractions of diseases, weakened immune systems, and the onset of new, or worsening of current, symptoms of mental health disorders. Additionally, untreated substance use disorders can also cause extreme upset in other facets of an individual’s life as well. Marriages or partnerships can crumble, child custody may be lost, and careers can be tarnished. Furthermore, those who abuse drugs or alcohol are at an ever-present risk for experiencing an overdose, which has the potential to be fatal. By opting to receive comprehensive care in order to put an end to one’s addiction, however, such detriments can be avoided or overcome.
