Hello hi, Never thought I'd find myself in this type of chatroom, but then I'd bet that about most of the people here feel that way. I have read through some of the stories and the people here (addicts, recovering, everyone else) are truly inspirational and fighting such a good fight. Such an unimaginably difficult fight. I'm really inspired, thank you for sharing your stories, it gave me the strength to post this today. I am here because I am concerned about a loved one. I am pretty sure he is addicted to a medication (or medications) and I don't know how to start to get him help. His behavior has become increasingly erratic, he is prone to angry outbursts, emotional abuse (of others), impulsive behavior, insomnia, I could keep going. Anyway, he doesn't think he has a problem. I think we need to do an intervention but I'm not sure? How do I know when it's time? When do I involve my other family members? I don't want to be too rash but I'm so, so afraid that we are losing the real him to these drugs that I don't want to wait too long. Another one of my family members said that she would start taking steps to intervene but I really don't think she will. She's been living with it for so long, she'd rather not rock the boat. I don't want to usurp her either! I just know I need to do something but I don't know what!! Has anyone here been in a similar position? Any advice, or sharing of your own experiences would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much!
