Support the one you love

Blame, guilt, shame. None of that belongs to you. We help you make sense of your loved one's addiction. 

When you feel stuck, we can help

We understand how isolating it is when your loved one is struggling with addiction. Shame, confusion – and even anger – are probably just some of what you're dealing with.

These complex emotions make the process of getting good help very difficult.

We're here to change that. Our loved one coaches have walked in your shoes.

There's a lot of advice out there, but it's often not effective. We'll help you find what works with the person you care about.

Maybe you're struggling to be supportive while setting boundaries. Or feeling guilt, like you're somehow to blame.

We emphasize supportive approaches:

  • Learn about the complex disease of addiction.
  • Strengthen your own well-being.
  • Improve communication.
  • Learn how to model and encourage change.
  • Establish healthy boundaries.
  • Motivate others toward change.
  • Enhance your quality of life.

A supportive approach

Our loved one coaches are trained in specific techniques found in Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT).    

CRAFT teaches loved ones how to positively motivate someone to change by rewarding wellness activities and discouraging use of alcohol or other drugs. 

CRAFT helps loved ones by:

  • Teaching them to modify their usual behaviors, reactions and expectations toward the unwell loved one.
  • Reducing or eliminating use and addictive behaviors in the person suffering.
  • Helping to motivate their family member or friend to seek treatment.
  • Showing them the importance of self-care and their own wellness.

One of the most important features of this approach is that it is non-confrontational, giving loved ones a positive alternative.

CRAFT techniques lower rates of symptom recurrence (relapse) and help motivate unwell loved ones to treatment.
