Many people jump straight to doing drastic measures outright, sending their kids, their families who are addicts to rehabilitation, to shrink and even to court to punish them for their crimes. Instead that they support and talk emotionally compassionate to them, they stubbornly believe that they own loved one have to be frantically punished. I don't think that this is really effective because what I think addicts are needed is emotional comfort. They wouldn't get into their addiction in the first place if they didn't have emotional problems. So instead that they'd be sent against their will, they should be first coax that it's for their own good, and if they don't want to do it for themselves, they must at least do it for the people that they love, to whom they see hope.
