I am lucky; in my family we have not had a drug addict. On my husband’s side it is a bit of a different story. His brother was thrown out of the navy due to drug use and one of his sisters fought addiction for many years before finally succumbing. It is something he really does not like to talk about since he has never been a drug user and has not even been tempted, but he wishes he could have helped his sister.
There are many treatment options, like those provide at Morningside Recovery. I know that if we knew more about her situation that we could have helped her and encouraged her to attend a place where she could get expert counseling and treatment. The choices for treatment are many and we if we know of somebody in need, I feel we are obligated to help them in any way we can.
My husband was a drug and alcohol advisor in his navy days and he says the hardest thing to do is get somebody to admit they have a problem, but once they do they can begin the road to recovery. He is not an expert in treatment, but has learned that professional help and family support are the best things to help a recovering drug addict. Places like Morningside Recovery can offer the professional help and support necessary.
