Realizing that one of your friends or loved ones is addicted to alcohol or drugs is scary enough realization. But sending them to Alcohol Rehab or Drug Rehab is another prospect altogether.
What you should realize at the outset is that by sending them to rehab, you will be saving their lives. Unchecked addictions have only one way of ending and that must be avoided at all costs. However, sending a person to a Drug Rehab Facility or putting them through an Alcohol Treatment program is not going to be easy.
Getting the person to admit to their addiction(s) is the first barrier you have to breach. Once you do this your task becomes a little easier. Ease the idea of a treatment center into the conversation slowly. Once they start showing a little bit of interest, tell them about the facility you have in mind. If it is a place like Cirque Lodge, you will be able to show them the website and let them go through it at their own pace.
Even if they don’t want to see it or read through it, you can explain to them about what the treatment program is all about. You have to make them realize that modern treatment programs are fairly painless and involve a lot other activities as well. In fact, if it weren’t for the drug or alcohol issue it would be more akin to a paid holiday. Alleviating their fears will make it easier for you to get them to the rehab center and get them to stay throughout the program.
