What is the best way to support a loved one with an addiction?

If you have a loved one struggling with addiction, you may be riding a rollercoaster of emotions–worry, fear, confusion and guilt. There may be shame as well. What happens if the neighbors or anyone else finds out? Consequently, you do everything you can, on your own, to help your loved one. If you are putting out fires daily, it’s difficult to think about or put in place a plan for a long-term solution, leading you to think there is no way out. The maddening thing about addiction is that no matter how much we love someone, sometimes our best intentions and best efforts may actually hurt their chances for recovery. We all need help and support in this struggle. A Step Out Of Darkness offers practical instructions on how to develop an action plan that holds your loved one accountable for their behaviors and guides them toward making the decision to enter a formal treatment program.
Once a loved one enters treatment, the most frequently asked question is, “What is the best way to support them?” This book offers practical advice on how to walk with someone through treatment and details common pitfalls awaiting a person in recovery and their families.
