Coping Tips

Conflict and Substance Abuse

Disagreement is common in families where there is drug and alcohol for various reasons:-
 
We get many telephone calls regarding parents 'waiting up' to confront a drug or alcohol user who has been out getting high. It may be better to wait and address the issue later. It is never a good idea to deal with things:-
  •  When the person is "hanging out' for drugs
  •  When the person is intoxicated
  •  When the person is 'coming down' from drugs
 
You might think this leaves very little time to do it but the best outcomes come when you pick the right time.
