Stop Taking CocaineFor a loved one it can be very difficult to see an addict suffer with their substance abuse. They want to help them in any way they can, without encouraging them to become more dependent on the drug. For instance giving an addict money to help them pay the rent is not really helping them at all but merely giving them the funds to buy more drugs.

If you know someone with an addiction to cocaine or any other drug then helping them and giving them support sooner rather than later is the best option. Show them that you love them and that you're going to be there for them throughout their treatment to becoming clean. Never force them to give up their addiction as they have to admit it to themselves and decide that it is time for them to deal with it. Forcing someone to accept treatment for their addiction very rarely works.

There are plenty of help centres around who will be able to give you advice on how to help with cocaine addiction and the best way to support your friend or loved one. Just remember that no matter how your loved one behaves when coming off the addiction, it's the disease itself that is causing the behaviour and it isn't anything personal to you. At this time your loved one will need you to be strong and help them
with their fight.
