When we talk about addiction, it’s easy to understand and see that our loved ones are suffering immensely from their substance abuse. We know that with the right help, they could be free from their struggles. As a parent, spouse, sibling or friend, our hearts break in their pain. But, helping a loved one with their addiction is not always as simple as reaching out to them. In fact, many times, when we do what we think is right – it ends up backfiring, causing a rift, creating arguments, your loved one isolating, and their usage continuing.
Help is available at Hills & Ranges Private – when family members are involved (aren’t they always?!) we counsel both the client and their family as to the specific therapeutic treatment plan that is to be put in place to help the suffering addict. We stay in touch and organise twice weekly interaction with family throughout the client’s program, and allow family visits and excursions once weekly.
