Substance abuse is a disease. Without professional help, your loved one may not recover. Due to the sensitive nature of this issue, never take it upon yourself to tell your loved one to stop abusing alcohol or drugs. Instead, calmly tell your loved one why you believe there is a substance abuse issue at hand, and explain what steps can be taken to receive treatment.
