When a loved one is struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol it can be very difficult getting them to recognize their need for treatment because denial goes hand and hand with substance abuse and chemical dependency. Quite often when parents and other family members attempt to talk with a loved one about their use of drugs or alcohol, the conversation gets heated and more harm than good ends up coming out of it.
Unfortunately this is normal because the person struggling with addiction is in denial and they're defensive and unwilling to listen to anything other family members have to say on the subject. Family members by this time are usually frustrated, angry, and definitely fearful for their loved one so the well-intended attempt to urge them into seeking help just makes the situation worse most of the time.
