How to Tell Your Loved Ones You Need Cocaine Addiction Help
It will benefit you immensely to seek professional cocaine addiction treatment now when you realize you require it, but telling your loved ones you need this help can be a difficult task. Call 800-736-5356 to find rehab centers that will cater to your needs and help you put an end to your cocaine abuse.
The National Library of Medicine lists secretive behavior and lying as some of the symptoms and behaviors of drug abusers, so whether or not your family and friends know you have been abusing cocaine, it is likely you haven’t been completely honest with them up until this point.
This is why it is important now to be as truthful as you can about what you have been doing, what you need as far as treatment, and how they can help you create the recovery you want.
Especially if your loved ones had no idea you were abusing cocaine, they will be likely to get upset. However, even if they did know, they may be frustrated with you at this time or may not want to hear what you have to say. You must remember that you cannot change their minds and, above all, that the best thing to do is to stay calm.
This can help keep your conversation from escalating into a painful argument where everyone says things they cannot take back.
Know What You Need for Treatment
It can help your case immensely to already know what you need as far as your treatment plan and what, if anything, you expect from them in the way of support. Maybe you need them to help you pay for rehab, or maybe you just want to know they will encourage you as you work on your recovery and make the changes you want to see in your life. But it is important to know what treatment option you will choose and how you want them to help you.
If you have not chosen a treatment option yet, we can help you find a rehab center that will be best for your needs as a recovering cocaine addict and as an individual. Call our helpline toll-free at 800-736-5356.
Tell Them You Love Them
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “Many people do not understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs.” Because of this, your family and friends may not understand fully what you are going through or why you need what you do in terms of treatment, but it is important to remind them that you are still you.
Tell them you love them and that you want to get better, not only for yourself but for them too. Once you are able to talk to them about your needs, if they care for you, it is likely they will support your decision to seek help.
