How to deal with an alcoholic mother

How to deal with an alcoholic mother

Does your mum always find an excuse to drink at any time, for any reason possible? Is she hiding bottles of alcohol around the house or become completely dependent on alcohol to get through the day? There are a number of challenges you may face when living with an alcoholic mother, for example, you may get to a point where she knows she has a problem but continues to lie to you about it. These is one of the signs of alcohol abuse. Dealing with an alcoholic mother is not to be done alone. A support network for both you and your mum will be the best way to guide her through her recovery and Port of Call can help build this.

Helping your drug addicted mother

One of the most unimaginable positions to be in is you having a drug addicted mother. Firstly, you need to remember, whether you are an adult or a child, your mum will find it extraordinarily hard to listen to you. She will most likely be in denial over her drug problem, and will most definitely not want her son or daughter to know that she has an addiction. She may feel weak and ashamed or completely adamant that there is nothing wrong with her. Your position as her child is difficult, wanting to help but not knowing how. Port of Call has experts who know exactly what you are going through and can help you understand your mother’s struggle and can help you find a way to deal with it.

How Port of Call can help

Your mother may not want to show weakness to her child, so Port of Call could be the bridge to recovery that you’re both looking for. We offer confidential advice, intervention, information on detox programmes and rehab facilities. Port of Call can help your mother find the right treatment that for her.
