Why Should You Seek Addiction Treatment for Your Loved One?
Today, experts understand more about addiction than they did in the past. Our parents and grandparents may have seen addiction as a problem of willpower; they believed that a person could stop using drugs or alcohol when they wanted to. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Drugs and alcohol impact the chemistry of the brain and ultimately rewire the reward system. As a result, your loved one may believe that they need drugs or alcohol in order to function normally. If they don’t use these substances, they may suffer a range of withdrawal symptoms, such as:
- Depression or anxiety symptoms
- Muscle aches
However, the longer they continue using drugs or alcohol, the more the substances will change your loved one’s brain chemistry. This change can increase the severity of the addiction and make it more difficult for them to stay sober.
How Can You Encourage Your Loved One to Seek Treatment?
If you know someone you love is suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol, it’s time to encourage them to get help. At Beacon of Light in Recovery, our goal is to get your loved one into into the right treatment facility for them. We can help you through the intervention process and work with your loved one while they’re in treatment. Once they leave treatment, we will follow your loved one’s journey to encourage them to stay sober. If necessary, we can also work with you to find sober living homes where your loved one can put their skills into practice without worrying about slipping into old habits.
We work with a wide array of addiction treatment centers throughout the Texas area. However, you can trust these treatment centers because we don’t send anyone to a facility we haven’t personally visited to ensure that your loved one will get the support they need.
In addition to finding you the best treatment center for your loved one’s needs, we provide personalized treatment every step of the way. You’ll have our interventionist’s personal email and phone number, so in an emergency, you can get in touch with us immediately. Our goal is to support and encourage you and your loved one throughout the recovery process.
