Enabling Addiction – Our Helping was Hurting

How much can you give to save your loved one’s life?  Will you give your money, your time, your prayers?  Will you even give yourself until there is nothing left of you?  Every family is enabling addiction in some way.  Kevin Lee, co-founder of Intervention Services speaks frankly on how his family continued to sacrifice everything, all in the name of love. And how it wasn’t until they learned how (their) “our helping was hurting” that the situation began to truly change.

Often times, out of love, the families of the addicted want to do what they feel is best to help their loved one, but end up making matters worse by being manipulated by the addict and not by learning the necessary tools that help you not only help your loved one, but allows you to learn to take your life back.
