You cannot help a person who is sure that he does not need help. However, you can help make the decision to get better.

Specialists who have been working in the field of treatment and rehabilitation of addicts for many years at testify that there are practically no cases when a patient comes for treatment from an objectively “bad life”, in which he “has something to use” for. As a rule, the atmosphere at home is favorable, there is a place to live, there is something to eat, the police do not bother, health is in order, and then one morning he woke up, brightened his face and decided to go for treatment. This does not happen! Addicts have no conscience while using. Addicts have no control during use, no compassion and empathy for loved ones when they are looking for a new dose. They do not think where you get the money that you give them, how much debt you have and what kind of health you have, what mood you are in! They think only about how to satisfy their irresistible craving - addiction.

It is better to collect the necessary amount of money once for a center with highly qualified specialists, where they pay attention not only to treatment, but also to psychological rehabilitation, work with co-addicts, than to regularly and absolutely uselessly spend money on conclusions from drinking binges, doctors of alternative medicine, try to cope on their own, losing hope, health and strength.

Many families no longer have money for the treatment of their beloved, dear and dear drug addict or alcoholic, because most of the money they earned was given to its use and ineffective treatment. Until this happens to you, stop participating and promoting the use of your son, grandson, husband, father. You will save valuable time of yours and his life, which can be spent with benefit on fighting the problem, undergoing treatment in a center where there are real results.

In the case of chemical dependence, a serious damage occurs not only to the physical, but also to the spiritual sphere of a person. More often it refers to the quality of relationships with family, society, oneself, and the whole world. As the disease progresses, in the addict, these natural relationships and associated values ​​are replaced by a closer relationship with the chemical and become paramount. Everything else loses its significance. Usually, people close to chemically addicts believe that if he loved me, he would give up his destructive passion. But it's not. The decrease in the value of family relationships does not occur of his good will - this is another manifestation of the disease.

And you also need to understand that alcoholism and drug addiction are incurable to the end. Alcoholics and drug addicts are not former ... BUT, in the process of rehabilitation, they learn to be aware of this fact, receiving the necessary help from therapists, psychologists, recovering addicts and achieve a state of remission or "purity" - complete NOT using. Achieving and maintaining this state can take a long and very long time. Former alcoholics and drug addicts do not say about themselves: “I am cured”, for them it is always a process. The process of maintaining one's integrity, purity ... and independence . They say, "I'm recovering." And they do very important work on themselves every new day.

Strictly speaking, the persuasion of loved ones rarely contributes to the patient making a conscious decision to go for treatment. One of the options is the help of the rehabilitation center staff, who, with the participation of other family members, will work with the addict in order to create a motivational crisis. And it is necessary to reinforce it by creating difficulties for the addict in using it. Only the systematic work of chemical addiction consultants and family members can bring the addict to a rehabilitation center and, therefore, give a chance to stay sober and alive, raise children, see grandchildren, benefit society, re-feel the taste of one's own life without the object of addiction.
