Help For Those Who Love a Crack Cocaine Addict

Crack cocaine addiction is a spiral that often seems unbeatable with no way out.

The drug addict has fewer and fewer moments of clarity and seems to be in a world of addiction 24/7.  For someone who has a loved one addicted to crack cocaine, there is also a spiral that seems to have no end in sight.  The truth is, crack cocaine not only steals the addict’s brain and personality, it also steals the very person you loved.

Help for those who love a crack cocaine addict exists.

If you have a loved one addicted to crack cocaine, it has affected you in a lot of ways as well and the first step you should do to become cause over the situation is to learn for yourself all about that drug and how it affects the addict. You can get valuable data on different WebPages, such as  this one: http://narconon.ca/crack_cocaine_addiction.htm. Also, a professional substance abuse counselor will be able to help you on this vital step. Your co-workers, your friends, your neighbors, they may not understand what you are going through but a drug rehab counselor do.

Something else you have to do is get your loved one help even if he or she is in denial.

    thanks for the post.
    It is good to see the basics written out. Sometimes for people in addiction or people dealing with active addicts it is difficult to know what to do. Sometimes it seems obvious…sometimes not so obvious.

    Anita,
    You clearly show that you do love your sister, and this is why it is OK to not like what she is doing. Going on that, because you do love her you will have to intervene. You know from experience where this type of drug addiction will get a person. If you can gather your family and close friends, you can have an impact on her to help her get into treatment. It will not be easy, and it will be very emotional, but you love your sister and intervening is one of the best ways to help her.

    I am in a relationship and I am so in love with him, but I have tried several times to have him admit he has a problem and he all he says is that I don't want to do it. Now he says to me how am I hurting you? It rips me apart to see him do this crap and what he does. I use to give in, but now I don't help him with money or anything associated with the stuff. I can't explain to him how it is hurting me. I knew him when I was 17 yrs old and he was this great guy and he still is a great guy. When I first met him it took him a yr to tell me this and about 2 yrs later I couldn't deal with it. I tried helping him and his friends had an intervention for him and he quit for 6 months and now he does it once a week and says I have cut back compared to what I use to do and he has, but I can't get him to quit completely. I figure if I don't argue with him about it maybe he will quit or just don't bother, but that kind of makes me feel that I am giving into his addiction. I made him look in the mirror one time and he didn't like what he saw, but it still didn't help. What can I do or say to help him. I know he has to admit he has a problem. He use to spend around 300.00 on it now he spends like 80.00 once a week. He use to do it everyday and now once a week. Is this a good thing I have done to help him? How can I get him to completlely quit. Need some help or answers Please!!!!!!!

    I have a crack ADDICTED husband who is now in treatment and trying to find work now i know that he could beat this because he has twice before. What i need is for someone to talk to for all that i have endured. I listen to the steps he has to take and for what he has to do while in recovery and the[ different people who has finally helped him see the light but what he doesn’t understand is that while he is in the mode of forgiving himself I have no one to help me to forgive him, yes i love him to death but i can’t  get past his wnting everything  to go back to normal like we didn’t just go thru alot. I’m holding alot in and it is killing me inside not to be able to let it out to someone who undrstands and could give me some valuable advice and some insight he went thru addiction n got help n I didn’t
