“What To Do When Someone You Know Is Dealing With Addiction.”


Let’s talk about what to do if your
family or someone you know is being affected by addiction or mental health
issues of any kind. We know this is a difficult and emotional time for you, as
it was for my family just a few years ago. It is so important to find a sincere
and trustworthy resource for you to start this process. Here with me is Tim
Scanlan, Admissions Director of the Prescott House, he deals with hundreds of
phone calls a month from people who are reaching out in times of crisis. Tim,
what’s a normal situation that you encounter when you take these phone calls? The one common
denominator I get when I speak with families is they’re scared for their
loved one. They want to get the best help possible and sometimes they don’t know
where to look for that. So, I try to help them through this process and reassure
them they’re not alone throughout all this. As you heard it’s not uncommon for us to
speak with families and individuals in crisis.
Sometimes it’s the person actively in addiction but more commonly it’s a
family calling us because they don’t know what to do or where start. The important thing to do is take action,
make a phone call. We want to be that trustworthy resource for you, as we have
been from thousands of families for over 30 years. Pick up the phone, give us a
call, we would love to get you any information that you need. (866) 425-4673
