Telling Others About Your Addiction Issues
I was terrified of telling others, especially my relatives, about my addiction. I wanted it to stay a nice and quiet cat and mouse game. My immediate family already knew for some time—when you live together and your belongings, including jewelry and money constantly go missing, you eventually catch on. Looking back at my actions of so long ago, a lot of shame and guilt beings to build up—although I’ve learned to let that go through therapy at Bright Futures Treatment Center. The number one advice that can be given is to never be defensive or angry about going to addiction treatment. It has to be your own personal choice and must be communicated through openness and honesty.
Delivering The Message of Substance Abuse
You need to tell others that you’re going to rehab face-to-face…neven digitally or over the phone. Here are some tips to make the message and comprehension process as smooth as possible:
- Make sure your loved ones have free time to talk
- Choose a discreet and private location
- Have a plan of action on how you will bring it up
- Plan your core message—you’re not reading a scripted scene, but you have to cover main points.
- Be prepared for any kind of reaction—from hysteria to attempts and violence—but you have to keep your cool.
- Give others the needed time to process the news so don’t expect immediate responses.
Now that have covered the main points, it’s up to you to pick up the phone and make the call that can change your life forever. Every second in active addiction counts so do not hesitate any longer.
