Standing Your Ground When Your Loved One Refuses Crystal Meth Rehab

One of the most effective ways to address the situation when a loved one is living with crystal meth addiction is to stage an intervention with the goal of getting them crystal meth rehab help immediately. However, no matter how well you prepare or what you do, it doesn’t always in work. In some cases, your loved one will initially refuse crystal meth addiction treatment. What do you do when this happens? Do you give up? Absolutely not. Stand your ground and prepare yourself for the fact that anything can happen.

Either Choose Crystal Meth Rehab or…

Before you stage a crystal meth addiction intervention, you should take some time to come up with something like an ultimatum to give your loved one. Spouses may say, “Either you get crystal meth addiction treatment or I will need a separation.” Bosses may say, “Either you accept the addiction help we’re offering you today or you will need to find another job.” These ultimatums are not designed to control your addicted loved one but to protect you and others who are living with the effects of their addiction. You are offering them help. It is not fair for you to continue to live with all the problems that come with their addiction if they refuse treatment. You are letting them know with this ultimatum that if they say “no,” you will begin prioritizing your own health and wellbeing.

Stand Your Ground if Your Loved One Refuses Crystal Meth Rehab

The provision of consequences can have one of many effects on your loved one: the fear of losing whatever has been put on the table may be enough to spur your addicted family member to choose crystal meth rehab – or it could make them angry and push them instead to say “no” out of spite. In some cases, your loved one may understand your position and need to protect yourself by putting distance between yourself and their continued addiction but still choose not to go to rehab.

If your loved one says “no” to treatment, the most important thing for you to do is follow through on your promise. If you said you’d file for divorce, do it. If you said that your loved one would need to move out, make it so. It won’t be easy for you or for them, but it is absolutely crucial that you stand your ground.

Dear Friends,

On November 10, 2018, the Woolsey Fire destroyed The Canyon at Peace Park’s treatment facility. At this time, The Canyon at Peace Park is not accepting patients for any services. We arranged for the safe and seamless discharge or transition of all patients when we were forced to evacuate due to the fire.

For over 12 years, The Canyon at Peace Park has been privileged to provide integrated treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders to patients across the nation. Our main focus has always been on our patients and their success. We have served hundreds of patients and their families, providing exclusive treatment and services for a wide range of behavioral health and addiction issues.

Our trained, compassionate staff has been committed to delivering quality patient care with dignity and respect, with the goal of helping our patients return to their communities as healthier individuals. We are extremely proud of the sacrifices of those who worked every day, often under challenging circumstances, to positively impact our patients’ lives.

We thank the physicians and staff for their expertise and dedication in providing high quality, compassionate treatment and care to the patients we have served.

We look forward to carrying on The Canyon at Peace Park’s legacy through our outpatient locations in Santa Monica and Encino. Foundations Recovery Network also has other residential and outpatient facilities around the country offering the same high quality of service you’ve come to expect from us.
