Narconon International Publishes Indispensible Guide for Families Dealing with Addiction
Date:11/19/2013

(PRWEB) November 19, 2013

Chuck's 26-year-old son has been addicted to crack cocaine, alcohol, pills and marijuana for more than ten years. Charles said if his son goes back on the streets, he will die. The years of addiction have drained the family of financial resources that could help the young man.

Andrea's 28-year-old brother started using marijuana at a young age and then progressed to Ecstasy, cocaine, pills and finally heroin. He has stolen everything of value from his parents and is now threatening to harm himself if they kick him out of their home. His parents give in just so they can know where he is.

Lucy's methamphetamine-addicted daughter is five weeks pregnant, sleeps all day, steals from the home and rages at her mother constantly. At 23, she has been addicted for eight years.

These are real stories from real people who are at a loss about how to cope with an addicted loved one. This person they have loved for many years has become someone they don't know any more, someone who lies, steals and threatens. It is terribly hard to know how to win in this heartbreaking situation. For that exact reason, Narconon International has published the pamphlet 14 Rules You Must Never Break when Dealing with Addiction.

"In our nearly fifty years of helping people recover from addiction, we have heard from tens of thousands of families whose lives were damaged, sometimes ruined, because they simply didn't know how to cope with this tragic situation," said Clark Carr, president of Narconon International. "We want to provide some guidelines to help families make better choices when faced with this challenge. With better choices, there is a greater chance of recovery for their loved one and less heartbreak all around."

This publication, available as a free download, uses the experiences of real people like Chuck, Andrea and Lucy to instruct families on the rules that can save them years of heartbreak and financial ruin. This booklet includes advice on how to:

  •     Avoid being an 'enabler'
  •     Deal with all the lies and manipulation
  •     Prevent financial losses from mounting up
  •     Find the right rehab
  •     Help the person stay sober after rehab

Carr suggested that anyone trying to help an addicted loved one read the booklet and send it to other family members. "By learning and using these rules, a family may be better able to resolve the problem of addiction years sooner. These rules could even result in their saving their loved one's life by getting them into rehab earlier," he added.
