Should a person abandon a recovering addict during a relapse?

Updated: Sep 17, 2023

It's generally not advisable to abandon a recovering addict during a relapse. Instead, consider the following:

  1. Safety: If there's a danger, seek immediate help.

  2. Communication: Talk openly and non-judgmentally.

  3. Relapse is a part of recovery: Understand that relapses can happen and don't mean failure.

  4. Support with boundaries: Offer emotional support while maintaining healthy boundaries.

  5. Professional help: Involve experts like therapists or addiction specialists.

  6. Self-care: Prioritize your own well-being and seek support for yourself.

Remember, each situation is unique, so use your judgment while offering support and care.
