If you have a family member or a close friend who is battling a drug or alcohol addiction, you know just how painful it can be to love someone who has a substance abuse problem. You probably want to do everything that you can for your loved one, but you might feel powerless in this situation.
Luckily, there is something that you can do to help your loved one — recommend that she attends a rehabilitation treatment facility and moves into a women’s sober living home.
There are a few reasons why a women’s sober living home can be a good choice for your addicted loved one. First of all, she will be held accountable for her actions and will be living in a home in which drug and alcohol use are not allowed. Being held to strict rules regarding drug and alcohol use could be what she needs to stay sober and on the right path. Staying strong against an addiction can be tough when your loved one is in a place where she can easily use, but this won’t be the case in a sober living facility.
Plus, you will feel good in knowing that your loved one is safe if you choose a good sober living home for her. Women who live in drug- and alcohol-stricken homes can often be subject to abuse, rape and many other dangers, but your loved one will be in a loving, supportive and safe women’s-only household.
