The fate of an addict or alcoholic is not something you’d wish on a complete stranger – much less someone you know and care about. When it is a close friend or family member, the emotional pain you feel can be close to unbearable. You know this person must get to treatment, but how do you help convince them?
Some of the stuff I’m going to share with you today has been my recovery experience which has helped me stay sober. If you can get anything out of it, I hope so. One of the main things I want to tell you is that I went to treatment myself and before I left treatment there were aftercare suggestions that they want me to abide by and live by.
