Summit Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Seeing someone you care about struggling with drug abuse can be stressful. And while you may feel as though it is impossible to offer help, encouraging the drug user to get professional treatment at a Summit, NJ rehab center or elsewhere can prevent the person from hurting his or herself and others.

In 2016, nearly 3,400 Union County residents entered substance abuse treatment. Of these, heroin was the most common substance abused, followed by alcohol then marijuana.1

If you think a loved one or friend has a drug problem, speak to them in a calm, non-threatening tone of voice about your worries. Be specific, citing situations whenever possible rather than using vague language like “I worry about your health.” However, be careful to avoid placing the blame on the drug user, as doing so is unproductive and may even lead them to begin using again. Pushing someone you care about into treatment is not the answer either; it can lead to relapse or early release before program completion. Instead, encourage your close friend or family member to start considering treatment.

Another idea is to stage an invention meeting in the presence of friends and loved ones. This meeting should be conducted in a comfortable setting with only close family and friends to prevent the drug user from simply walking out. The meeting should consist of each person providing guidance and support for the drug user in an effort to help them identify their addiction, realize the support network they have, and begin their journey to a sober-free lifestyle.

Only once the drug user understands the issue will they seek a solution. Even if they don’t admit to having a substance abuse issue, explain that you care deeply for them and will continue to offer unconditional support. Offering such support to a loved one who has a drug addiction is invaluable.
