Supporting Someone with an Addiction

Help and Support for Spouses

Valuable Sources of Support for Addicts and Family Members

As addicts work to apply the steps of recovery, seeking necessary support from others, they will benefit from the sources listed below.

  1. Ecclesiastical Support
    Never forget or underestimate the power of ecclesiastical stewardship.
  2. Professional Counselors
    When selecting professional help, it is important to select someone who is supportive of gospel principles and treatment standards consistent with those found in the addiction recovery program.
  3. A Support Person
    A support person helps those in recovery put their “lives into perspective and avoid exaggerating or minimizing [their] accountability” (Guide, 29).
  4. Recovery Meetings
    In these meetings, newcomers hear participants describe how they apply recovery principles and practices in daily living.
  5. Family Members
    Family members can most effectively be a source of support by offering love and acceptance, and by applying the same treatment steps to their own lives.
