For those who have struggled with addiction, the thought of living a sober life without the use of drugs and alcohol may seem impossible. They have grown so dependent on drinking and using that they don’t see how they could live life sober. Abusing drugs and alcohol has become a way to deal (or not deal) with every situation and feeling—loss, stress, fear, boredom, grief, low self-esteem and insecurities. For some, they have become physically dependent on drugs or alcohol as well and must use to even feel normal. For people at this point, they may not even be getting high/intoxicated anymore and are using only for maintenance. If they do not you, they start to suffer from painful withdrawal symptoms.
The bottom line is this—if what you are doing isn’t working for you, there is another way to live. People who no one thought could stay sober, who did not think they could stay sober themselves, have found happiness and lasting sobriety. We know this because There is a Solution is a treatment placement service made up of men and women who have been able to achieve long term sobriety. Many of our friends and family members had given upon us, but through drug and alcohol treatment and working a program of recovery, we were finally able to overcome our addictions.
For the family members of someone who is in the grips of active addiction, they may also start to wonder if their loved one will ever find help. Just like the addict battles this disease, so do the friends and families of addicts. The nights spent worrying if their loved one is okay, giving them a place to stay, money, bailing them out of trouble and so on.
There is a Solution can help both addicts and their families start the process of rebuilding their lives. We can refer you to professional interventionists who are trained and experienced in getting addicts to see past their denial and accept the help they need.
