It can be painful to see a parent battle an alcohol dependency, no matter how old we are. It’s easy to feel powerless to help someone when you know they’re struggling, and it can feel even more suffocating when that person is your mother or father. There’s no need, though, for you to feel alone against the world when a residential treatment program can offer individualized care and a structured, safe environment for them to begin a path to recovery. You can assure that your parent has access to trained staff, their therapist, and a medical team in a substance-free environment in a facility.

Choosing Inpatient Treatment
Inpatient care at a residential treatment facility offers a client the highest level of service and support for someone with an alcohol dependency. Inpatient treatment typically includes mental health care and a medical detox if one is necessary, which can be difficult to achieve alongside alcohol addiction recovery at home.
Those who can most benefit from a tailor-made inpatient program are often people who have recently experienced a relapse or people who are at higher risk for experiencing alcohol withdrawal. Another demographic that often benefits from time in a residential treatment facility is anyone who has tried less intensive levels of addiction care but found themself unable to stay sober. Those struggling with a co-occurring mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), may also find that inpatient treatment is the right fit to begin working toward sobriety.
Talking to an Alcoholic Parent About Treatment
It can be terrifying to approach your parent about their alcohol dependency. Still, it’s very important to remember that unless you’re concerned about potential violence, the benefits of the conversation outweigh the risks. Help is available for those with alcohol addictions, and it is crucial in the quest for a happy, healthy life. If violence is something that you’re worried about, make sure to have someone with you.
Remember to start the conversation with care. You’re there to show your concern, never to confront. It’s not your responsibility to convince your parent that they have a problem, but only to tell them that you are concerned they might. Continually emphasize that you are only talking to them out of care for their well-being, safety, and health. Make sure that neither you nor your parent is intoxicated before you begin the conversation, and keep to the topic at hand — There’s no need to speculate about the causes or ask for an explanation of why.
