Have you told your loved one about any treatment or support or community you’re involved with relating to their substance use disorder? For example, the Village Community, Al-Anon/Nar-Anon, therapy, or any other support? If so, how did that conversation go and what was the response?
My husband who is my qualifier has in the past encouraged me to attend Al-Anon meetings. He even introduced me to a woman in his AA meetings so we could talk and I could I could gain a different perspective which was helpful.
That is really great to hear! Have you continued to go to Al-Anon? Has it been helpful? My husband is really supportive of my Al-Anon involvement. He knows how much it helps me and I think in turn knows that it helps him, too. Whenever he’s struggling and I ask, “How can I support you through this?” he tells me, “Just keep doing what you’re doing.”
