What to Say to an Addicted Family Member

Our professional admissions team will answer your questions and provide you numerous options for receiving treatment.

When someone you love is acting secretive, it can be very upsetting

Addiction is tricky because it changes the behavior of the person who suffers from it and causes them to live in denial of their problem. When a father, son, husband, or brother becomes dishonest, angry, or even violent, it is not their true nature but the addiction causing them to act out ina hurtful way.

Addiction is viewed as a disease by virtually every medical organization – a disease that is treatable (as is alcoholism).

Until the man who is in need of help reaches out to us, there is little that we can do. We recommend that you contact our facility if a man in your family is in need of treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. We will perform an initial assessment over the phone and then help you get in touch with someone who can help you start a dialogue with your loved one.

Drug addiction and alcoholism can result in lifelong incarceration or have fatal repercussions if left untreated. We are glad that you care enough to read this page and are contemplating taking action to save the life of someone you love.
