Do you have to engage in all of these behaviors to feel crazy? NO!
You can engage in ONE of these and be hurting yourself AND your loved one.
While you’re busy trying to help your loved one get their life together, your life is falling apart!
But you keep going, because part of you stays hopeful.
You know your loved one is still in there! You remember who they used to be. They were caring, kind, loving, fun and smart!
You’re at a loss. You have done everything you can think of to end this nightmare.
Why isn’t any of this working? What is it going to take to get through to your loved one once and for all?
The only thing that will truly help is getting the education; you need to know what works and what doesn’t.
You need a solid action plan. And you need concrete strategies to cope!
Maybe some of you have had the opportunity to attend a family program while your loved one was in treatment. And maybe while it gave you a head start, it left you with more questions than answers.
And what about the families whose loved ones refuse to go to treatment? You don’t get the chance to attend a family program.
