Honestly, no one wants to be in treatment. People who do not have addictions must understand that for addicts, their addictions are their best friends – this is true whether it involves a chemical dependency, an eating disorder, a shopping addiction or any other addiction. Addiction is their way of dealing with life. Whenever they encounter something unpleasant or difficult, they turn to their addiction(s) to cope.
At Shades of Hope, we work to uncover the mask of addiction that covers the core issues and underlying pain. If your loved one doesn’t want to be in treatment, it is about the fear of having to live life without the tools (addictions) they use to medicate the stresses of life. Addicts are often in denial about their addiction or the severity of their addiction.
In some cases, an intervention may be necessary to get your loved one into a treatment facility. Please feel free to contact us for additional information.
