Is your loved one struggling with substance abuse? Knowing that someone in your family or circle of friends is battling addiction problems is a worrying thought. But even if you’re coming from a place of concern, confronting the person and forcing him or her to seek out treatment right off isn’t the most ideal approach to take. Here are a few ways to help the person and yourself.

Read About Addiction

Find out as much as you can about the addiction. Understanding is key to helping the person. You can’t offer help if you don’t know or understand what’s going on. Addiction affects the human body and behavior. Lack of knowledge about its effects can lead you to say something that could inevitably discourage the person you are trying to help. Don’t make that mistake. Find out about addiction so you’ll how to properly extend the help that the person needs.

Look for Rehab

Start checking out their credentials and qualifications. Which one will make for an excellent option for your loved one? Which one will provide him or her with the help s/he needs? Some facilities offer separate houses for different genders. Some use a holistic approach, encouraging patients to learn alternative treatments such as yoga. Figure out which one is the best possible match for your friend or family member.

Consider Support

Not all rehab facilities encourage the support of loved ones, though. If that’s important to you and to the individual who is going to check into the program, then keep looking until you find a treatment facility aligned with your thoughts on support. In many cases, support from loved ones contribute to a patient’s rate of recovery.

Check the Environment

Pick a rehab facility with a supportive environment. To find out more about that, research about the rehab center. What do the comments say? Some details about the way the staff treats the patients will help you gain a better sense of the people at the facility. Keep reading. You might find feedback that helps you figure out the kind of treatment your loved one can expect.

Ask About the Treatment

Learn more about the programs offered at the facility. Is the care plan tailored to your loved one’s specific needs? Reach out and ask. That way, when you talk to the person struggling with addiction and you successfully convince the individual to seek out help, having the information ready will be a godsend.

Know How Long

Some treatments only last for a few days while others run for weeks or months or even more than a year. That means it’s often difficult to choose which program is right for your friend or family member. What you can do, though, is to choose one with a shorter duration. You can always ask foran extension later. Talk about that before the individual checks into the program. Most facilities don’t have any problems granting an extension, but it’s still a must to clarify the details.
