The problem of drug addiction remains relevant for the entire society. It is known that drug addicts are not able to take responsibility for their actions and control their actions. It is very difficult to talk and convince them of something, because people who abuse drugs just as quickly and easily forget all their promises as they make them.
If the addict is a person close to you, try to understand the reasons that prompted him to use drugs and determine the degree of passion for them. Also try to find out his attitude to drug use.
It is very important that a drug addict is aware of his problem and tries to deal with it, otherwise treatment is unlikely to help. After him, many drug addicts still return to their favorite pampering. When you are convinced that your friend, loved one or child is not against the provision of medical care, contact a specialist in drug addiction. Remember, the sooner you do this, the more likely the help will be effective.
Keep in mind that until the person himself wants to be treated, nothing will work. Your task is to push him towards this treatment. As a rule, drug addicts begin treatment after a strong emotional shock. This condition is commonly referred to as “hitting the bottom”. At this time, the burden of existing problems does not allow the addict to continue using drugs. And it is during this period that you can seriously talk with him about the future.
Please note: while the addict is high, it is almost useless to talk to him. He will not hear you, and if he does, he will not understand, and if he does, then it is not so. During the so-called "withdrawal" with him, too, you do not really talk. Then his thoughts are occupied with thinking where and how to get drugs. It turns out that you have about two hours for a serious conversation between the time the influence of the drug is almost over, and the withdrawal has not yet begun.
It is pointless to beg or threaten a drug addict, since this person is emotionally quite strongly protected. Try to make him feel the whole horror of what is happening with his mind. Be honest with him so you can earn his trust. Never promise him what you cannot do, and never threaten with what you cannot do.
