To the Family
Updated: Apr 16
If you are viewing this site or making calls, this is an awful time for you. We get it. You've tried everything and have not been successful, you've been called an "enabler" or "co-dependent". Let me assure you, that is not the case. You have been traumatized, as much as your loved one has and you're fearful of what will happen if you let up. Judgement and threats are not effective. What is effective is non-judgemental, empathetic and compassionate care and the education as to how to live life without the use of substances. This is what we pride ourselves on.
Probably you don't know what to expect or what to tell your loved one to expect in accessing treatment. As the person who works with inquiring individuals, I feel it's my duty to take the mystery out of treatment and the fear with it. Making people feel safe and comfortable with the treatment decision is so important for follow through with admitting.
This is scary, I understand. Please give us a call and let us take the mystery out of substance use disorder treatment.
