How To Talk To Someone About Their Addiction

First, you need to know they may not be willing to listen to what you have to say. They may even deny they have a problem. Every addict is different and will respond to the situation differently. Be prepared for them to reject your help at first.

In most cases, we have found that it may be best to start the conversation with a non-threatening question. Then sit back and listen. By asking simple, guiding questions, you can keep the discussion on track. Honest dialogue can help your person feel like they have someone in their corner and more importantly that they are not facing this alone.

Here are a few opening questions that may help you start a conversation with your loved one:

  • You haven’t been yourself lately. Is there something going on?
  • How are you? I’ve noticed that you’ve been acting differently the past couple of (months, weeks, etc.)
  • Can we talk? I’ve been worried about you.
  • I know that you’ve had a lot on your plate lately, and I’ve noticed that you have been drinking a little more than usual. I’m wondering how you are doing.
  • I saw (insert date) that you were doing (insert drug), and I am worried about you.

Now that you opened the lines of communication, you may want to keep the conversation flowing with follow-up questions, such as:

  • Have you been feeling like this for a while?
  • When did you start feeling (insert the word they used – like out of control, stressed, overwhelmed, etc.)?
  • Is it that you are trying to avoid or escape something?
  • Do you feel like your (drug or alcohol) use is becoming a daily thing?
  • Have you tried to go 24 hours without (using drugs or drinking)? Do you think you could go a week?
  • I am here to help you. What can I do?
  • I’ve heard that quitting cold turkey or on your own can be difficult. Have you ever looked into getting professional help?

Lastly, providing some words of encouragement may be the extra push they need to reach out for real help.

  • You are not alone. I am here for you.
  • I want to help you in every way I can.
  • It may seem scary now, but I know you are strong, and you can do this.
  • Of course, I don’t know exactly how you are feeling, but I care about you and want to see you healthy and happy.

Encouraging Someone You Love to Seek Treatment

Talking to your loved one about their addiction can be scary, confusing and intimidating, but we can help.

 

Most people worry that they may be overstepping their bounds, or they may be making the problem worse by addressing the elephant in the room – their addiction. Nothing could be further from the truth. If someone you care about is exhibiting behaviors commonly associated with substance abuse, the best thing you could do is face it head-on. Just simply starting the conversation could be the wakeup call they need to seek help.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you determine the level of care for my loved one?

Our intake coordinator will conduct a thorough pre-assessment to help determine which program fits their level of addiction and recovery needs. We can do this easily over the phone. Your loved one will have a complete medical and psychological examination when they first arrive at the facility. This will help us create a customized program tailored to their needs. We offer a variety of programs, including medical detox, residential inpatient treatment, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, outpatient, aftercare, sober living and more.

 

How long will my loved one be in rehab?

In general, it is difficult to determine how long a patient will need to stay with us until we complete a thorough on-site clinical physical and psychological assessment. Every person’s treatment needs vary greatly. Your loved one’s stay is based on their overall physical and mental condition as well as their clinical needs. Research has proven that the longer the period of time a person can be in treatment, the more successful they will be in achieving long-term sobriety.

 

Do you administer medications as part of treatment?

We believe in helping people abstain from substances in recovery while minimizing the adverse side effects of withdrawal. In some cases, taper medications may be administered during the medical detoxification phase of their treatment. With the close guidance of an addiction clinician/counselor, some medications may be a part of their customized treatment plan for patients who also struggle with co-occurring mental health disorders. If it’s medically necessary to keep your loved one healthy, safe and comfortable, they will be administered medication as part of their treatment under the guidance of a physician.

 

How do we know what to pack?

Before coming to our campus, your loved one will be provided with a list of what to pack for their stay. They will also be presented with a list of items that are not allowed on campus and should be left at home. A few common things we do not allow on campus are cell phones, laptops and any devices with an internet connection or camera. This is to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of all of our residents. Should you have a special request about what they want to bring, please discuss it in advance with one of our intake coordinators.

 

The holidays are around the corner. Will my loved one be home?

Rehab is not easy at any time, but the holidays can be even more challenging when someone you love is in treatment. However, delaying addiction recovery is not an option and can be detrimental to your loved one’s health and safety. It’s ideal to be admitted into treatment sooner rather than later, even if it means missing the holidays at home.

 

My loved one wants to do their treatment out-of-state treatment. Is there a way for me to still be involved?

Families are usually included in the treatment process once it is deemed clinically appropriate. Depending upon your loved one’s recovery progress, family sessions may be scheduled as part of their treatment plan and can be either in person or over the phone. In some instances, family members may be asked to attend one-on-one sessions with a therapist to discuss how they may support their loved one after treatment.
