"You cannot watch someone killing himself without doing anything. If someone has a knife and wants to kill himself. You will do anything to stop him. Drugs is the same thing. It is just a longer process "

Stop rescue missions

Stop all “rescue missions.” Family members often try to protect or to 'save' the abuser from the results of their behavior by making excuses to others about their abuse problem and by getting them out of drug-related jams. It is important to stop all such rescue attempts immediately, so that the addict will fully experience the harmful effects of his or her use and thereby become more motivated to stop. Do not pay their bills, do not bail them out of jail, do not pay their rent etc.
