Addiction is a tricky disease that many avoid discussing, leaving many others with more questions than answers. It comes as no surprise that most people feel lost when looking for addiction treatment. Most of them have no idea how to find help, let alone get into treatment. This addiction treatment eBook includes everything you need to know about finding support and the best way to start treatment.
There’s a lot of information around addiction, but this eBook focuses primarily on addiction treatment. Still, if we were to cover every addiction treatment aspect, this book would have a million pages. Instead, we’re focusing on common questions everyone needs to know about addiction. In this first edition of our addiction treatment eBook, you’ll find:
- What is addiction treatment?
- How to find help?
- What are the types of treatments and services available?
- How can I pay for addiction treatment?
- The importance of caring for yourself
Who Should Download This eBook?
This book is for anyone who has a family member struggling with drug or alcohol addiction. However, anyone with a close friend or relative struggling with addiction can find this book’s contents helpful. It’s important to note that this book is not meant to diagnose or treat any condition. This is an educational tool that helps people understand addiction and its consequences more comprehensively. It includes information on how to help your loved one, keep your home safe, and how to seek help for addiction. We know that if your loved one is actively using drugs, you may feel hopeless, saddened, and lost. We want you to know you’re not alone in this struggle.
What Can My Next Steps Be?
If, after downloading this eBook, you feel confident your loved one is struggling with addiction, please know you’re not alone. We’re here to help you understand what to do next. To start, we recommend that you reach out to one of our addiction support specialists to see what your next steps could be. To some, this might be staging an intervention with a therapist present to help your loved one agree to treatment on their terms. For others, it means you have to see if there’s a possibility to check your loved one into rehab. Finally, others might not help their loved ones yet, but they still need to help themselves. So, we always encourage people to attend support groups for families of addicts. Seeking therapy for yourself can also help ensure you’re taking care of your mental and physical wellbeing. This will help you be strong and ready for when your loved one feels willing to seek help. If you have any questions, we invite you to call us at (866) 308-2090 at any time to speak with our caring admission specialists. We’ll listen carefully (and confidentially) to your questions, needs, and concerns. Together, we can help your loved one start the journey to recovery. Remember, addiction is a life-threatening disease, so every second count.
