A person with a drug or alcohol abuse problem is doing what they are doing because that is all that they know to do to escape from whatever problem they are trying to escape from. With this in mind, the first thing that you have to do to help a drug or alcohol abuser is to help them to stop drinking or using drugs. Once the person has achieved that and they are now substance free, eating well, sleeping well and any health issues that might be present have been addressed and resolved, at that point the appropriate steps would be to help the person to rehabilitate abilities that are vital to anyone’s daily life that have been lost because of their addiction, like, how to confront daily life without drugs, how to repair relationships, how to resolve feelings of guilt and shame, how to deal with problems that are sure to arise in day to day life, how to deal with and manage past negative memories when they trigger so that they do not reenact past events, renew ethics and morals in their life, achieve a greater understanding of oneself in order to better solve problems and succeed in all areas of ones life.
