Offer a Helping Hand
Addiction often affects more than just one person. It also generally involves the friends and family members of the addict. If you know someone who is suffering from substance abuse, certain precautions should be taken. When they’re sober, explain how much you care about them and counsel them to seek the medical help that they need. It is not advised to make them feel guilty or ashamed of their actions. Be supportive of their feelings and encourage healthy rehabilitation.
The Types of Addiction
Not all addiction involves illegal drugs. Many people are addicted to pain medications that were legally prescribed. Even when the patient is no longer suffering from their injury, they may still feel the need to continue taking the medication. Occasionally, this can lead to the more serious abuse of illegal substances.
