If the senior is struggling with their self worth or feeling lonely the addiction distortedly tells them that it can fill this void.

Speaking Point: All those with addictions the person needs support to help them stop. They need this support to build self- awareness as to the dangers of addiction. The challenge is senior citizens may have more of a problem getting help because of their age. They may also refuse help because there embarrassed to ask for it.

Speaking Point: Family members may not know the severity of their addiction due to their age. They may believe that someone older would never get addicted to anything. This means the family needs to educate themselves on addiction so they can be a positive resource to the individual. Sometimes the family can also be a part of the problem.
