Most of the referrals I get are triggered by spouses or parents of people who are struggling with some addiction problems. The spouse’s and parents of the addicts I have worked with have strong and mixed feelings; on the one side, they are frightened for the addicts’ future and even their life and on the other side, they are frustrated and angry at their wives/husbands girlfriends/boyfriends, or mothers/fathers of the addicts. They feel desperate and overwhelmed and don’t know what to do for their loved ones and this puts them in a very difficult place. This is unfortunately, quite common to feel this way and you shouldn’t feel that you need to do it alone or suffer in silence. What is the next step?
The next step is getting treatment.
