Counseling for Friends & Family of Addicts
More often than not, drug addictions start with the experimental use of a drug in social situations. And for some people, drug use becomes more frequent. As time passes, a person may feel the need to use more of a drug to get their desired high, and soon a person may need the drug to simply feel “good.”
When we see this happen to a loved one, we do everything we can to help. But sometimes, our unconditional love simply isn’t enough.
Signs and symptoms of recent use include:
- The feeling of exhilaration and excess confidence
- Increased alertness
- Increased energy and restlessness
- Behavior changes or aggression
- Rapid or rambling speech
- Dilated pupils
- Delusions and hallucinations
- Irritability or changes in mood
If your loved one comes to mind with any of the above symptoms and behaviors, it may be time to consider addiction counseling. I am not a certified substance abuse counselor, however I am in network with many amazing therapist with this specialty. I would be more than happy to provide a referral or recommendation.
My experience is in working with family members of addicts. I have seen first hand what drugs can do to the life of someone you love. And I’ve also seen how they changed and turn their lives around. There is Hope and it is possible!
Because of my personal experience I am passionate in helping provide clinical support and psycho-education to family members or friends of anyone battling addiction.
