The emotional and spiritual transformation of Twelve Step recovery in an accredited drug rehabilitation center leads individual patients to go from fearful, self-centered addicts into loving, focused persons who can live healthy and productive lives If you have a loved one, friend or colleague who is exhibiting signs of alcoholism and/or other drug addiction, there are actions that you can take to give the prospective patient the best possible chance of entering a quality drug and alcohol treatment center. The first step you can take to help your loved one get into a drug rehabilitation center is to speak the truth to them. Expressing loving concern for alcoholics and addicts in addition to beginning to set appropriate boundaries can be a powerful start to recovery from addiction. But they must want to be helped.
