For a Loved One
Are your concerned that a loved one has a problem with alcohol or drugs? Being close to someone who has a problem with alcohol or drugs can be both frightening and frustrating. You may feel like you have tried everything: taken care of the person to help him/her get sober, yelled at the person to stop, thrown away the persons alcohol or drugs, threatened to leave, sworn that you were going to kick him or her out of the house, or even called the police.
Still nothing seems to have changed.
Perhaps you are worried for the safety of your loved one, are tired of frequent arguments that your loved one doesn’t even remember, had to suffer the consequences of your loved ones alcohol or drug use, or even been in fear for your own safety. Maybe you have confronted your loved one about his or her drug or alcohol use only to be told that he or she isn’t drinking or using drugs or that he or she can’t stop and you just don’t understand. If this sounds familiar Adaptation is here to help.
