If you have a loved one with an addiction you’ve probably tried everything you can think of to get him/her to stop: nagging, threatening, ultimatums, bargaining, attending support groups, etc. You may feel like there is nothing that you can do to get them to stop. Don’t give up, there is hope. An approach called CRAFT has been shown in well-designed research studies to get approximately 7 out of 10 loved ones into treatment. Additionally, CRAFT has been shown to improve the well-being of family members. This highly effective approach does not rely on confrontation or detachment. Instead, you will learn about specific actions you can take to free yourself from their cycle of addiction.
