Probably one of the most influential factors in an addicted person's success of reforming is the support of family. I've seen families with an addicted loved one and those that showed support and patience succeeded in helping their member change. Sticking together no matter what the odds gives an assurance to a person undergoing reformation that he/she is not alone in the fight for sobriety. Family is where people usually get their strength from, especially if the ties are really strong. So if you have a family member who's struggling right now, just reach out your hand and guide him/her through the process of change.
