How can I convince my loved one to seek treatment?
Usually, the dependent will not go to a treatment center voluntarily. Neither will counseling be effective in convincing the dependent to do so. Some families attempt an “Intervention Process” but it has been the practice of most families to do the responsible act of admitting a loved one to a recommend a drug rehabilitation center. It is ideal when the entire family recognizes the problem and collectively makes a decision to admit the loved one. In many of the cases, however, it takes the decision of a single family member (a parent or spouse) to initiate the arrangements until further support could be won within the family. It has been observed that once the dependent is showing improvement in treatment, family members who were once resistant often turn supportive.
