Gratitude Lodge on How to Help One’s Child Seek Treatment

February 27 20:52 2024

Gratitude Lodge wants to help guide parents through the process of helping an adult child receive treatment for substance use disorder.

Substance use disorder is a serious disease that affects not only the person experiencing it but their loved ones as well. It can be overwhelming to know how to help or where to begin with treatment. This guide will make it easier to know what steps to take to help a loved one.

If oneself or a loved one is struggling with addiction call (949) 919-6195 or visit to learn more information and explore the best treatment options.

The first step to helping a child overcome substance abuse is to learn about addiction. This can help create an understanding of what the child is experiencing. It is also vital to show compassion, addiction is a disease and should be approached by giving compassion rather than shame. Expect confrontation to be difficult. Approaching the possibility of getting help can be scary for one’s child, prepare for a difficult discussion and try to have patience. The most important thing is to ensure one is engaging in self-care. Set boundaries and seek counseling as this can take a toll physically, mentally, and emotionally. It is difficult to help one’s child if they can’t help themself.

Addiction treatment is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s important to find a treatment plan that is designed for the individual. At Gratitude Lodge, the focus is on the individual and treating every aspect of their addiction. Oftentimes people experience co-occurring disorders which is when someone is experiencing substance use disorder and a mental health condition simultaneously. Evidence-based treatments like Medicated-Assisted Treatment (MAT), Inpatient rehab, holistic therapies, talk therapies, and sober living are great options for those needing treatment.

Gratitude Lodge is a drug and alcohol rehab in Orange County, including addiction treatment centers in Newport Beach and Long Beach. It offers various evidence-based treatment methods with an expert staff, offering a supportive and peaceful environment to treat addiction. Gratitude Lodge works to ensure that all clients get the help they need and deserve to fight back against addiction and live a healthy lifestyle filled with gratitude, helping them appreciate each and every day.
