How to Help Someone Struggling with Substance Abuse
Helping someone overcome a substance abuse problem, whether it is marijuana, crystal meth, heroin, cocaine, alcohol, or anything else, is not something that most people should do alone. From recognizing that a problem might exist, all the way through to aftercare of the patient, it is a process that is difficult to do by yourself. When one family member or a friend has a problem with substance abuse, it does not just affect them – it affects everyone around them as well.
Recognizing the Problem
Part of the difficulty with addiction is that people who suffer from it are uncomfortable or unwilling to admit that it is an actual problem. Many of them will remain in denial, even if their drug use is spiraling out of control. That is why friends and family recognizing the signs of a problem may help speed up the recovery process. Though the symptoms can obviously vary depending on what the individual is using, they often include the following:
- Criminal behavior
- A sudden loss of interest in pleasurable activities or hobbies
- Poor performance at work or school
- Isolation from friends and family
- Spending time with a new group of friends
Stop! Before you send your loved one to a drug rehab center based only on cost or location, contact us to find out what types of rehabilitation programs have the best recovery rates.

Getting a Person into a Program
How do you begin? That is the most important question we receive from our callers, sometimes they are able to see that a problem exists but they are unable to do anything about it. In that situation, it may be a good idea to reach out for assistance, especially because the last thing you would want to do is alienate yourself from the very person you are eager to help.
The most effective way to get someone to recognize that a problem exists is by staging an intervention. This means contacting a professional intervention specialist that can help the family prepare the meeting. During an intervention, friends and family have a chance to share their feelings and emotions in an open and honest way...let them know exactly how their life has been impacted by the substance abuse problem of this individual. The tone needs to be non-confrontational and supportive while remaining clear. This is precisely why having a specialist present is a good idea because they can help guide the conversation.
Immediately following this, it is important that a user receive treatment as fast as possible. During a successful intervention, the process gains momentum and it would be a shame to lose that momentum by not having a plan in place. The family and/or friends should have a desired treatment location in mind before they ever organize an intervention.
Another reason that good support matters is because once a patient completes his or her program, they are recommended to enroll in an aftercare program. This is another method to avoid relapse, one such example is follow-up counseling. Family and friends can play an important role here to, because they can urge the patient to attend meetings and provide them with support if they feel as though they are prone to using. Many times, it is the program that provides the initial start, but it is the family and friends that the patient has outside of the treatment facility that make the difference once the person leaves treatment.
Problems that are Facing the State
Heroin, powder cocaine, crack cocaine and marijuana are the four most available, popular and trafficked illegal drugs in Delaware. However, clandestinely manufactured drugs, such as methamphetamine and club drugs, such as MDMA (ecstasy), are also readily available to users of various ages and socioeconomic backgrounds. While OxyContin appears to be less available; other diverted pharmaceutical drugs remain available to users in Delaware. Delaware's largest city, Wilmington, is located on the Interstate 95 corridor, the East Coast's most frequently traveled highway that runs from Boston, through New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, to Miami. Due to its location and proximity to Philadelphia and New York, Wilmington has become a lower-level source city that is accessible both to trafficking organizations looking to move operations from major cities as well as to distributors from within Delaware and from surrounding areas in southeastern Pennsylvania and Maryland.
