How to Help Your Loved One

How to Help Your Loved One

Here are a few tips for approaching your loved one about their problem:

  1. Plan ahead – Don’t wait until you reach your limit when your loved one pulls the same old stunts from holidays past. Productive conversations don’t often happen when tension and emotions are high. Plan out what you’d like to say to your loved one ahead of time and calmly address your concerns with them while they are sober, if possible.
  2. Involve family and friends – Family and friends gather together during the holidays anyway, so use this to your advantage. Realizing that not just one or two people, but several of those closest to them share the same concerns can send a stronger message to your loved one.
  3. Use non-defensive language – Refrain from using language that can put your loved one “on the defense.” Use “I” statements rather than “you” statements. For example, “I care about you, and I feel scared and hurt when I see you engaging in these self-destructive behaviors,” versus “You make me so angry when you go on one of your drinking binges. You seem to only care about yourself.”
  4. Arrange a professional intervention – According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, over 90% of people make a commitment to get help during interventions guided by a professional. Consider consulting a professional interventionist who can assess the situation, devise the best approach and effectively mediate what can be a highly charged conversation. Our experienced advisors can help you find a professional interventionist in your area.

Make the most of this holiday season. Give your loved one back their life and a reason to celebrate next year. We can help.
