Cocaine Addiction Caregiver Tips
- Get educated about addiction. It is important to understand that addiction to cocaine is a brain disease and not merely bad behavior. It will help you to be supportive of your loved one if you know how addiction affects them.
- Be involved in the recovery process. Often, an important component of addiction treatment is family therapy, in which the patient and their loved ones learn new behaviors and coping strategies together.
- Don’t get discouraged. The battle with addiction is tough and usually long. There are almost certain to be setbacks and obstacles along the way. Be prepared for disappointments, and don’t let them discourage you from continuing the fight.
- Get help for yourself. Take time to keep yourself healthy, both physically and mentally. Be careful to get enough sleep and exercise, eat well, and walk away from the stress of the situation when you’re able. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from your friends or family, and find a support group if you feel overwhelmed.
