Caring for someone with opioid use disorder

Caregiving can leave you feeling stressed, angry and isolated. Due to the stigma our society has placed on opioid use disorder/substance use disorder, users expect people to criticize, insult, belittle and reject them, and caregivers may experience the same feelings.

A loved one with opioid use disorder wants you to know:
- Your love will not change or save me.
- I'm not choosing the drug over you.
- I want to quit.

Help your loved one by:
- Being consistent
- Being predictable in your words, behavior and actions
- Showing love and support by setting healthy boundaries
- Supporting change
- Having a plan
