Top Atlantic City, NJ Addiction Recovery Centers: Reviews and Ratings

Atlantic City has high rates of substance abuse. In 2011, it was among the top 5 municipalities in the state for drug treatment admissions, with a steady increase in admissions since 2000.1

If you know someone who is abusing drugs, it can be nerve-wracking to ask them to seek treatment. Many people don’t know how to approach their loved one, or they’ve already argued with them about treatment.

Some tips that may help you make the conversation easier are:

  • Remember to stay as calm as possible. Even if your loved one acknowledges that they have a drug problem, they may not be ready to seek help.  Try to be patient. Approach them about the issue when they are not high or in a public space. They may be more open to discussing it.
  • Ask friends and family members close to your loved one to stage an intervention. An intervention is when friends and family members confront the person about their drug use and urge them to seek help. With an intervention, you won’t be the only one asking them to get help. You may want to hire a professional interventionist to keep everyone on track and to help your loved one realize the seriousness of the situation.
  • If your loved one refuses to get help, make sure this decision comes with consequences or boundaries and that you stick to them. These can be anything from not allowing your loved one to borrow money from you to refusing to see your loved one when they are high. Creating boundaries can be a way of getting your relationship on a healthier track as well as letting your loved one know that you will not simply stand by and watch them continue their substance abuse.
  • If your loved one does agree to get help, have a treatment program already picked out. Then, make sure you support them through their treatment. After all, having the support of loved ones during professional rehab can make a person stay in treatment longer and achieve better results.
