Often we are well intended in our resolve to assist those among us who are struggling with Substance Use Disorder, however, in some cases, we find ourselves playing the role of the judge and jury in our approach of help. It is imperative, that we understand that SUD could happen to any and we must endeavor to apply the golden rule in our approach in assisting individuals struggling with SUD.
So doing the most good is more that we what we do, but most importantly the approach we employ as well as our intentions in what we do. We can not set out to show the individual in recovery how wrong he or her may be or how better we are than him or her. Doing the most good must be altruistic and empathic in nature.
