In brief: Do a family meeting
To engage friends and family members to help support one's treatment for addiction, one should select several friends and family members for a meeting at the beginning of treatment.
He should choose people who tend to enjoy helping others during illnesses and crises, yet he may want to avoid being overly demanding of friends and family members.
