Support someone with an addiction

We understand at Port of Call that supporting someone who has an addiction to alcohol or drugs can be exhausting. Family members can often experience a number of painful and conflicting emotions, but at the same time they are desperate to help the person in their life struggling with addiction.  Below is an infographic that will help you understand how to support a loved one through the recovery process, regardless of whether that person decides to attend an alcohol or drug rehab facility.

How to support someone with an addiction…

Not all addicts relapse but between 40 – 60% do; this graphical representation gives you information on the signs and triggers of how to recognise someone who is having a relapse.

One last thing, it is important that as someone who is supporting the addict that you look after yourself and don’t blame yourself for this situation. Port of Call offers support for both the addict and the family members and loved ones surrounding the addict. If you would like to talk, get in touch today for free on  08000029010.
