Comments for How can I support my son in his recovery?

You Need Knowledge and Wisdom

by: Ned Wicker

If your son is supporting himself, staying clean and sober, and takes his meds for the bipolar, you can just be a dad.

Love him, encourage him and be there for him, like any other father. Your son has a couple of issues, the addiction and the bipolar, so unlike other fathers you need probably to keep a closer eye on things.

I think the best way for you to support his recovery is to understand what he is experiencing, learn about the diseases he struggles with, and lend an understanding ear when he wants to talk.

So many parents feel helpless, but you don?t have to be helpless. Arm yourself with some useful knowledge, apply a little fatherly wisdom and pray for help.
