Tips For Talking To A Loved One About Addiction

  • Talk When They’re Sober. Choose a time when just the two of you can talk. Share your concerns objectively, but also give them time to voice their feelings.
  • Give Examples. Providing them with specific scenarios of times when you saw firsthand the negative consequences of their drug use can paint a clear picture of why you’re concerned.
  • Show Support. Remind them that you care about their health, happiness and wellbeing.
  • Be Consistent. Keep your messaging, level of support, and friendship clear and consistent throughout their recovery journey.
  • Encourage Treatment. Try sharing the benefits of treatment with your loved one rather than lecturing them on the negative effects of their addiction. Offer to help them research community resources and keep them pointing in the right direction.
