Methamphetamine Addiction Caregiver Tips
- Don’t support abusive behavior. You may be tempted to try to protect your loved one from the consequences of their drug use. However, the insulation you provide can get in the way of their motivation to quit. Instead, be loving and encouraging, but don’t help them to get away with the behavior that’s hurting them.
- Protect yourself. If your loved one is violent or abusive, remove yourself from situations that put you in danger. Take steps, too, to prevent your loved one from exploiting you financially to support their drug use.
