Default Unexpected death and depression

The unexpected death of her boyfriend had changed my daughter’s life. she got addicted to alcohol after this incident. This had ruined the happiness of our family. I had tried to convince her to get rid of it but of no use. She is depressed all the time and showing intense anger when we try to advise her. Seeking the help of a rehabilitation center is the only option left. I had already contacted an addiction treatment help center, they are providing the best recovery plan. But I don’t know how to convince her.Hoping for the best.

Keithf,

Have you thought of one on one counseling for your daughter. I would recommend that course of action also so your daughter can work through the depression and pain.

Keithf, Welcome to the site.

For your daughter to get better she has to realize she has a problem & she has to want to quit. Sad but the true.

Good luck.

One on one counselling? I had already tried a lot to convince her, but she is not ready to hear me at all. Now, I'm thinking of joining her in a rehab program in Calgary. They promised me that they will give her the best counselling and recovery plan. I wonder whether their plan will work on her or not. And now, I'm encouraging her to deviate her thoughts into exercise and all.
