Help for Friends & Family Members
Do you worry about someone else’s drinking, drug use, gambling or other self destructive behavior?
Have you felt hurt or embarrassed by his/her behavior?
Do you find yourself making excuses for him/her?
When addiction becomes a part of the picture, everyone suffers. You try everything you can to hinder the downward spiral, yet you can do nothing but stand by helplessly and watch. You feel angry, terrified and ridden with guilt. “My love should be enough to heal him,” “What did I do wrong?” “Doesn’t she love me?” “If he would just limit his drinking to the weekends or stay away from the hard liquor,” “If only I love him enough,” “If only I can get her to understand… ,” “If only he had a less stressful job”, “If only, if only…”
I can help you sort out the reality from the fears and work on solutions for you that will benefit your entire family.
