How to Support Your Loved One During Medication Assisted Treatment: Above all else, if you are going to be a solid source of support for a loved one who is obtaining medication assisted treatment, you must care for yourself first. While your loved one has caused obvious damage to his or her life, it is important to recognize that you have suffered as well. Therefore, to provide him or her with the support he or she needs, consult with his or her treatment program so that you can be referred to the appropriate resources for your own support and guidance. Obtain an education on opioid addiction and recovery, learn what your loved one's limitations and benefits of treatment will be, and find out what he or she will need from you throughout the recovery process and beyond. Attending family therapy, support groups, and individual counseling can be an incredible option for you and other loved ones. Always remember that in order to care for someone else, you must first care for yourself.
