indirectly helping the addictedMany people who decide to get help with their substance addiction might think that detox and rehab are the only parts of the recovery process, but ending substance abuse is only the beginning. Recovering from an addiction is a lifelong process, because staying sober takes commitment and determination. It helps for recovering addicts to have support from their loved ones, so it’s essential that people encourage recovering addicts by motivating them to continue living a substance-free life.

Millions of people struggle with substance addictions each year.  We can’t always help people directly but indirectly there are organizations and things you can do to help support them.actively listen

  • Create a substance-free environment – One of the biggest predictors of long-term recovery is whether or not users live in drug-free environments. Loved ones can protect a recovering addict’s surroundings by removing any drug paraphernalia and encouraging her to stay away from places that might tempt her to relapse
  • Actively listen – Some recovering addicts need people to listen to them, so be available to listen to your loved one’s victories and struggles. Some times it’s the little things and that’s all they need.
  • Put fashion in there way – You would never think fashion would be a way to help your sobriety, but I found several fashion brands to help and express your sobriety. If this is something you are struggling with or know of someone, share this with them or put it in their path.  There is nothing to be ashamed of, even though it is something that many people do not like to talk about.

It’s all about being indirect with it and supporting them. If you or someone you know is struggling with some sort of addiction there are ways of helping out without being blunt and direct about it.  Be supportive while they are going through this time in their life.
