MAKING THE TOUGH DECISION OF REHAB
So many of the calls we receive at our private rehab facility in Bournemouth are from distraught family members who are not only watching their loved one self-destruct but are also struggling to cope with living with the nightmare of addiction or alcoholism.
Very commonly the person with the problem is either, in denial about the severity of the issue, frightened to deal with the problem, or sometimes simply accepting that this is the way their life is.
As a friend or family member this can be both frustrating and terrifying. The combination of having to live with addiction and all the lies that go with it and living with the fear that someone you love is ultimately going to die is draining and unsustainable.
Most family members we speak to have tried everything from making threats, hiding bottles, restricting finance, trying to understand, shouting, guilt trips and much more and have found that ultimately none of these methods have been successful. They have tried to encourage the person with the addiction to go to rehab or seeks help but this has never been followed through.
If this sounds like your experience and your loved one is refusing to get help or you are doubtful they will go to drug rehab or alcohol rehab then Intervention may be for you.
If you would like to find out more about how intervention works please call our counselling team today on 0800 955 0945 and ask for Paul Spanjar who can talk you through the intervention process.
