Is Your Loved One Suffering From Addiction?
Addiction is a family disease and recovery should be a family journey. It’s incredibly hard watching someone you love struggle with addiction. However, you are not alone and family recovery is possible.
Addiction effects everyone who’s life it touches. If you’ve felt like your life has come to a half because of your loved one’s addiction, you’re not alone. Addiction may have affected your health, hobbies, friends, family, financial situation, and every other area of your life. Depending on whether your loved one gets sober or not, your life can change for the better. Launch Centers in Los Angeles offers family therapy for loved ones who are suffering from the effects of watching their loved one endure addiction.
You may feel guilt, shame, heartache and frustration with your loved one’s addiction. While you didn’t cause addiction or mental health issues, there are some things you may be doing that enables them to stay stuck in their behaviors
Here’s a few of them:
You didn’t cause your loved one’s addiction, though there may be things that are still keeping them sick.
- Making excuses for your loved one’s behavior to your friends and family
- Letting them live at home with you rent-free
- Blaming other people or situations for your loved one’s behavior
- Loaning them money for rent, utilities, or other items
- Bailing them out of jail or providing legal support
- Buying them another phone after they’ve lost it 5 times.
- Suppressing your emotions to avoid confrontations
At Launch Centers, we understand the complex roles of addiction and know how painful it is to see your loved one suffering. Trying to help an addict or loved one that doesn’t want to stop using substances may be contributing to their addiction.
We have designed the following questionnaire to determine if your loved one is suffering from addiction. There are no right or wrong answers, just honesty.
There is no one way to help the addict or alcoholic in your life. Substance abuse is extremely complex, and we recommend working with a professional to help guide your decision making. Remember, when it comes to helping an addict that you love, your perspective may be compromised.
We focus on all stages equally; we just want to know how to address you and your loved one’s needs. More importantly: we want you to help your loved one get back to the life they deserve.
No matter how severe your loved one’s addiction is, we want to help. Solutions are just a click away – let us know how we can meet you more than halfway!
