Watching a loved one struggle with drug or alcohol dependency is never easy, no matter the circumstances. Though their relationship with dependency is a very personal experience, addiction doesn't only affect the user: everyone around them also feels the distress. And the emotional and mental toll you experience can be crippling.
We understand the challenging experience and complex emotions you’re facing, and we’re here for you. Since 1998, we’ve helped thousands of people from every background detox safely and effectively. In fact, 98% of people who start our detox program complete it successfully.
Whether your spouse depends on pain medication, your child uses heroin or anyone you love struggles with an addiction, our compassionate team will walk you through every step of the detox process. We'll answer your questions and provide you with the resources you need to stay informed and empowered.
First: Understand the complexities of this disease.
No one chooses to become dependent on drugs or alcohol. Addiction physically changes the brain’s chemistry, causing people to make poor decisions and act in ways they never normally would. Your loved one’s behavior while struggling with their addiction may be heartbreaking, frightening, baffling, life-threatening and beyond.
While they’re engaged in a daily battle with their drug-altered brain chemistry, you can’t cure or control them. And if they try to quit cold turkey, the symptoms are often so unbearable that even the strongest person returns to using. They can even risk death during their withdrawal if they try to quit on their own without controlled support.
Second: Encourage treatment.
Too often, people dependent on drugs and alcohol think there is no hope and simply give up. But, once they complete a supported detox, and their brains heal, your loved one will be able to address the underlying reasons they started using in the first place.
At TCI, we offer patients a second chance at living a drug-free life, without the physical and psychological controls of dependency. By being informed, supportive and available throughout the process, you will provide your loved one the best opportunity for a new life.
Overcoming addiction is hard. While you dedicate your energy to being your loved one’s support system, we’re here to do the same for you.
