Keep the Lines of Communication Open

Heart Tree

Having a loved one addicted to drugs affects the whole family unit. Learning to keep the lines of communication open with your loved one is important even though at times it may seem that the emotional rollercoaster has destroyed any chance of reconnection. Stress levels can be high on both sides, however saying something positive such as “I love you” can make a huge difference to your loved one on their road to recovery. Say it before they leave the house or before they slam down the phone or even before you leave for work. It will also have a tremendous effect on you as a carer because you are starting to control how you react. Contact Tracy at Life in Harmony WA on 0420 349 007 or click on http://lifeinharmonywa.com/
