However, getting help is not always straightforward. There is no single method that will help them get better, although there is some general advice that will help. The eventual aim is an intervention that leads to the addict accepting help, often in the form of rehabilitation. If your loved one is suffering from addiction, here are some steps that you can take to help to get your life back on track:
Learn the facts about their addiction
Visit your doctor and also self-help meetings to find information and documentation on the addiction. This will help you decide which course of treatment you feel is most adequate and if you feel your loved one should enter alcohol or drug rehabilitation.
Do it early
Discuss it with your family and friends
Form an intervention
