Usually the relatives of those caught in the fetters of addiction, spend a lot of time and money to get the native people out of the swamp. It just all depends not only on the capacity and willingness of the family but the most important thing in this situation is recognition of the addict that he really is ill, and that he needs treatment. He must take care, because to cope alone – it is very rare. So how to motivate a drug addict or alcoholic to pass a rehabilitation course?
Motivation – is the creation of a human desire to change something in his life.
Communication –is the chief factor of motivation
Often the family begins to teach people how to live, tries to bring them up. This will lead to nothing good, only the dependent person won’t listen, but just will go into himself and his thoughts. It is necessary to clarify that communication is- an exchange of ideas and thoughts shared between several people. It is necessary that the sides would like to hear and embrace each other.
During a conversation with a drug addict or alcoholic you must clearly understand for yourself what kind of life problem he wanted to solve, taking drugs or alcohol.
The problems due to which the people begin taking substances that affect the man”s psyche:
problems in communicating with people;
lack of understanding with others;
general views with people who use psychotropic substances;
prolonged use of painkillers addictive;
social , professional environment (eg, creative professions)
personal problems, etc.
All of these items are only general, each person has an individual cause of initiation. Your attention must be directed to the detection of the problem, which happened in the life of a loved one, that could push him to use. If during the conversation you behave yourself wrongly, then the person is unlikely to share with you his experiences and problems again. You should bring to the dependent that you really want to help him, that you will not scold him. Only then you can hope that the addict will pass the rehabilitation.
The person who has complete freedom, and the one who has alone limits – they are both locked into the same trap. Only those who will be able to limit themselves and their needs will be able to start a new life, what he wants. And his family and friends will be next to support him.
