Enabling vs. Supporting An Addict Into Recovery
What an addict hears is very different than what you may have said.
What you said…“If you don’t want to get clean, then get out. I will not enable you.”
What they heard…“I hate you. You are worthless and hopeless. I give up!”
Try this instead…“Hello, I’d like to get my child into treatment.” Son thinks…“Help me mom, I’m scared.”
