Friends and family of addicts know how heartbreaking it is to watch as someone you love struggles with addiction. You may feel powerless, frustrated, angry, hurt and afraid all at the same time. You want to help but you’re not sure how. Addicts in their active addictions are not themselves. You may have found that past attempts to get the addict in your life into treatment haven’t worked. When confronted about their use, addicts often respond with denial and sometimes anger. Seeking professional help from an addictions specialist is recommended to support and guide the family through their intervention efforts. It is important to remember that you don’t have to do this on your own.
If you are trying to get your loved one into treatment in Florida, contacting Recovering Souls can help your intervention efforts. Our services are free. We can set you up with a professional interventionist who can give the support and professional guidance you need throughout this difficult time. A professional interventionist is there both for the addict and the family; he or she has the experience and the knowledge necessary to lead you through the process of getting your loved one into treatment.
Family and friends are often aware of the warning signs of drug use—change in appearance, money/legal problems, mood swings, etc— but what they don’t realize is how their support is enabling their loved one to continue to keep using. Recovering Souls can help you in your intervention efforts by showing you how to support your loved one without supporting his or her habit. You will learn how to create healthy boundaries and stand by them.
As soon as your loved one agrees to treatment, it is important to already have contacted a treatment center. We can direct you to some of the top treatment centers in Florida and help you decide which one is right for your loved one. We can also help instruct you on what do in case your loved one refuses treatment and advise you of the steps to take so that hopefully he or she reconsiders in the near future.
