Having a family member or a friend who is a drug addict must be one of the hardest problems to deal. People who are suffering from drug addiction have hard times quitting. They need professional help for them to be able to cure their addiction and start a new productive life again.

So how can we help our love ones to quit from their addiction?

Well, there are many things you can contribute to that. I think first and foremost is offering your understanding and love. They really need it. Showing them that you understand and love them will give them courage to change. Let them feel that you want to help them because you love them.

Let them understand that drug rehabilitation is an important process to cure their addiction. Yes, the decision to go to a drug treatment center is quite hard from them but let them understand that it’s the best way to treat drug addiction. There many drug treatment centers that offer this kind of help. Some are residential drug rehab where they can stay for the whole period of time while they are in the process of curing their drug addiction. In this place they will learn to develop lifestyle changes, managing their feeling and curing their addiction.

It’s not too late. Let our love ones live a good life again. Help them treat their addiction. Ask for help now!


  1. Donna you are absolutely right about being behind your loved ones in a time of need; especially if the loved one is an addict. The world needs to take a stand. They need to realize that addiction is a real problem in the United States.

  2. You may be able to stay clean and sober for periods of time, but without a medical detox program and drug addiction treatment, you cannot hope to stay away from drugs and alcohol forever.
