I would recommend two programs for your sister.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Cheryl,

Very glad to hear that your sister is finally deciding to get help. Her husband has a disease of the brain and is only going to stop when he hits bottom. The drug has taken over his brain and has convinced him that he MUST use.

The two groups I would recommend are Celebrate Recovery and Al-anon. Both of these groups are set up to help us to deal with the addiction of a loved one.

I would recommend your sister try each of these groups until she finds one that she is comfortable at and that helps her to get the resources she needs to help her husband.

I believe it will be best that she goes at least twice a week for the next 12 months. She can Google these groups to find some that meet in her area.

Addiction is a long-term problem and requires long-term solutions. Attending meetings for at least a year will help her to FULLY understand and deal with his addiction.

Hope this helps,

Debbie
