Help me save bae from drugs. Can I take him to rehab without his permission?


Dear MizzB

I discovered my boyfriend is using drugs for recreation.

I’m worried he might become dependent on them.

Is there a way that I can take him to rehab without his permission?

Dear Sistaz

Finding out that someone you love and care for is using drugs can be very upsetting.

Opening up about your concerns might just be the awakening call he needs.

Arranging intervention behind his back might not sit well with him.

So, to avoid him resenting you, rather tell him directly what your fears are.

This will help him take the decision by himself. and be able to stick it out.

Reassure him that you will be present and there throughout the rehabilitation process. All the best!
