People with a substance use disorder may deny the impact of their use and resist treatment. Confrontational approaches to address substance use can do more harm than good.
We recommend family members:
- increase their personal understanding of substance use disorders
- show love and concern,
- do not expect loved ones to stop without help
- offer support including willingness to go with them and get help.
- support long term process of recovery
We offer support for families like yours — our team can guide you in supporting your loved one’s recovery, while taking care of your own needs.
Fentanyl is an extremely strong synthetic drug—it’s in the same category of drug as heroin but is ten times more potent. It has become all-too-common for heroin and other drugs to be adulterated with fentanyl due to its strength and relatively low cost. People are usually unaware that fentanyl has been put in their drugs, which dramatically increases risk of overdose.
