People who know someone struggling with an addiction often wonder how to help addicts. The decision to try and get help for someone you care about who has an addiction is never easy. Unfortunately, the need to get help for a loved one has become my family’s reality and with your support, our loved one has a greater chance of overcoming their addiction.
My family recently found out that our loved one has an Opiate drug addiction. Opiate addiction has surfaced in recent years as one of the most prevalent addictions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 100 people in the United States die from drug overdoses every day. The CDC also reports that nearly three out of four prescription drug overdoses are caused by opiates.
Hearing the cry of our loved one and everyone who has been shaken up through this shocking occurrence has been a portion of the battle during our loved ones recovery. We’ve listened and watched each other drop to our knees overflowing with emotion. The feelings are one we never thought we would face and we look for strength in our loved ones “Support Team”.
We have been strong for our loved one’s path to recovery. We have admitted our loved one into an Opiate Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Center. Opiate dependence treatment often requires long-term treatment. This is usually a combination of detoxification, inpatient, and outpatient services. Unfortunately, our loved one’s insurance company will not agree to cover these necessary services they need to recover. They need these services but we have been faced with denials and constraints from our loved ones insurance company. My family and our loved one would be thankful if you could become a part of their “Support Team” and help save their life by making a donation (no matter the amount) towards their long-term treatment.
We Thank You for your Generosity
