You can still help a loved one who doesn’t want help. But, the best ways to help are not always obvious. One of the most helpful things you can do is get help for yourself, through education, support, counseling, etc. This is very important because, due to the nature of addiction, deciding on the best course of action can be tricky. For instance, sometimes you can actually help your loved one best by doing nothing. This is a complicated question that can only be answered through time, as you gain new learning from support groups and professionals in the field.
