Whoever the addict is to you—husband, wife, son, daughter, parent, or best friend—you need help on that broken road. What do you do while the addict is in and out of rehab, in and out of jail, in and out of your home, and in and out of your wallet? What do you do if they never clean up? You’ve kicked them out and they’ve come back with fresh promises. You’ve tried everything you know to do and called every number you’ve been given seeking help. Yet little to nothing has actually changed. What do you do? What can you do?
When You Love an Addict is full of specific Scriptures and practical advice concerning the very problems you are facing: how to talk to an addict, recognizing the difference between enabling and helping, making decisions about the addict, repairing broken relationships, building low self-esteem, maintaining joy, recognizing relapse, and many other topics.
Step out of denial. Stop ignoring the problems. You can learn to do more than just cope. You can make decisions that give you a life of joy and peace. You can’t make your loved one stop using, but you can reclaim your life, your peace of mind, and your own stability. When you are tired of living in the ruins of your shattered life, put to use the principles you will find in When You Love an Addict. You too can overcome!
