Support For You
We know it’s difficult to support a loved one through addiction, mental health difficulties, detox and recovery. As a loved one of a patient, you don’t always have all the tools and knowledge to provide the right support, spot the signs and help if they deteriorate or relapse. This section is a guide on how you can help someone with addiction or worsening mental health and how to support them through their inpatient stay whether detox or respite and how to prepare for their return home. At The New Life Centre, we also know that loved ones play an important role in recovery, so we want to give you tools for a successful recovery.
The New Life Centre treats lots of patients who are addicted to alcohol. Alcohol misuse and addiction is common and if you are suffering with this, you are not alone. If someone is dependent on alcohol, it is important to seek help to detox and not to stop suddenly. If a dependent person stops suddenly, there can be a risk of seizures or worse.
