Many times an abusive adult also has some type of addiction. My hope is that this article and link will help you.
If your husband has a substance abuse problem and won’t admit it, he is with the majority of people who have a serious problem with drugs and can’t seem to stop. What makes it so hard to confront a male with a problem is that they are responsible in most cases for supporting the wife and children, so their ego is in many cases much more fragile. The other problem is in many instances the female doesn’t know how to approach her husband properly other than being direct and to the point. But unfortunately this method doesn’t always work out as planned.
So if your husband has a problem and needs drug treatment intervention, there are viable solutions out there. First of all, they are trained to approach the subject in a direct but respectful and non confronting manner. This is important, because they could freak out of they are approached for example by a frustrated wife. In some cases they could just deny it. In others they could even get violent and abusive. The main thing to consider is how are they going to pull through this.
Drug treatment intervention counselors will find a way to get the subject to a specified location. It could just be one doctor or a number of other professional staff present as well. And in most cases the wife will be present. She will get to state how she feels about the problem, but the difference is that counselors will be there to make sure the situation remains under control and the subjects feelings don’t get hurt too bad, but at the same time he needs to realize he has a serious problem that if untreated, could run his career, family life or even worse.
Drug addiction is nothing to mess around with. Whether you use a free option or go get private help, there are solutions available that will help men with drug addictions. If you have private insurance you usually have a lot more options available for counseling. But the key is to make sure your husband gets help. Everyday he is addicted he is downward spiraling in the wrong direction. His health is getting worse, his career is in jeopardy and even risking legal problems which can cost thousands of dollars. I wish you the best in finding your husband the help he needs soon.
