How to help a son or daughter who may have a problem with drug abuse



If you suspect that your son or daughter has a problem with drugs, then you may be at your wits end and not know what to do. It is devastating to watch your child fall under the disease of addiction, and you may feel helpless, unable to help your loved one break free from the vicious cycle. You may be worried that their addiction will kill them, and dread every phone call or knock on the door. The good news is that you can help them, and Addiction Helplines are there to help you every step of the way.

You may have already tried to talk to your son or daughter about their drug habit – or you may have nothing more than a string suspicion. It can be difficult to know how to approach someone about their drug addiction. Most likely it will be denied, or excuses will be made, or the reaction may be hostile and cause rifts in the family. There is another way – a way that has been proven to help improve someone’s chances of beating drug addiction.

Intervention – a better chance

An intervention is when the addict is confronted in a pre-planned and organised setting. The family members, friends or concerned parties tell the addict the problems and effects that their addiction is having. By stripping down all the layers of issues and emotions around the addiction, an intervention takes away the veneer and gets to the root of the matter. Family members spell out the consequences of not seeking help.  By stripping down all the layers of issues and emotions around the addiction, an intervention takes away the veneer and gets to the root of the matter.
