We know how scary it can be to have a loved one suffering from addiction. It completely changes their priorities, their disposition and the way they behave. When someone is in their active addiction, they aren’t themselves. No matter how much you try to reason with them, they won’t listen. Despite how it may feel, you are not alone in your pain. In fact, 46% of U.S. adults have a family member or loved one in active addiction. Many do not receive the addiction treatment they need. For those who do, recovery is possible.

Why Can’t My Loved One Quit on their Own?
Addiction is a dead-end road that often ends in jail, institutions or death. Treatment is a wake up call that can save your loved one from a dark path. Aside from saving their life, treatment can begin to open the addict’s mind, allowing them to address the underlying causes of their disease. Through one-on-one and group counseling, they can face their trauma and begin to rebuild their relationships.
Addiction is a Family Disease
Addiction affects everyone around the addict. This can mean fractured relationships with a parent figure, or trauma in an addict’s childhood. Profound offers family therapy to help work through these issues.
Having a family member going through addiction can be a hard, and even traumatic experience. Remember that you are not alone. There are many resources and support groups available to you. We can help you get through this together.
