Dos and Don'ts of Encouraging a Loved One to Go to Rehab

Dealing with the fact that a loved one has an addiction can be challenging, and convincing them to go to a drug or alcohol rehab program can be even harder. Here is some advice on what you should and shouldn’t do while encouraging a loved one to go to rehab. Many of these suggestions are good to follow while helping a recovering addict succeed at sober living as well.

Do: Be Supportive

Having a supportive attitude is one of the best things that someone can do to help an addict throughout their recovery. This point of view on your part can not only encourage a drug abuser to seek help, but it can also reduce the likelihood of a relapse. Being a part of your loved one’s support system is possibly the best way to assist them in a time of need.

Do: Be Empathetic

Along with being supportive, having empathy about the situation may make the addict feel as if they need to be less defensive about their addiction. It also makes them more likely to come to you with problems again in the future.

Do: Set Healthy Boundaries

Setting clear and healthy boundaries will benefit the both of you. Being too involved may make the addict feel as if they have no privacy. Although you may be stressed and worried, implementing these guidelines will likely make the drug or alcohol user more receptive to your advice when they feel as if they have more independence with making choices. Going to addiction treatment will also be their idea.

Do: Talk About Treatment

Talking about what the addiction treatment and/or rehab center will be like can make the addict feel less anxious about the future prospects of recovery. Many drug rehab centers have activities like horseback riding, art classes, and rock climbing to pass the time. Know what their center will offer and highlight the things that they would be interested in to let them know that they won’t just be sitting in a sterile room all day. It also helps to have an idea of what to expect during a difficult time.

Do: Hold an Intervention

When all else fails, holding an intervention can help the addict see the seriousness of their situation. This needs to be done delicately; however, and remaining supportive and understanding is crucial when expressing your feelings. You can use the help of a professional interventionist if you don’t feel comfortable holding an intervention on your own. Planning for a stay at a drug detox center.

Don’t: Be Judgemental

Being judgemental is the quickest way to shut down a conversation and have the addict lose trust in you. As mentioned earlier, behaving in the opposite way will make your encouragement for treatment more successful.

Don’t: Forget a Plan

It is crucial to have a detailed planned course of action in any drug or alcohol addiction treatment, and not having one increases the chance of a relapse occurring. Coming up with a recovery plan alone may feel overwhelming to an addict, but providing your assistance in this process is a great way for you to offer additional support. Regardless of you helping to create this plan or not, you should know all of the details of it. This will allow you to help your loved one keep on the path of recovery.

Don’t: Beg The Addict To Stop

Begging an addict to stop their drug or alcohol use doesn’t work, no matter how desperate you may feel the situation is. It is best to avoid this behavior all together.

Don’t: Force Them To Go To Rehab

You cannot force anyone to make the decisions that you want them to make. Unfortunately, this includes undergoing addiction treatment.

Don’t: Get Angry

Like being judgemental, getting unnecessarily angry is a fast way to get an addict to stop talking to you about their problems. It is important to think about what you are saying, and how you are saying it, while expressing your feelings to an alcohol or drug user.
