ASK KEN: How Do You Help a Friend Get Sober?


In the latest segment of Ask Ken, a WEHO TIMES reader asks recovery and intervention specialist Ken Seeley for his advice on how he can help a friend get sober.

“My friend clearly has a drug problem and he’s on his way to hitting rock bottom. He lost his job because of his drug use, and I just found out he stole money from a friend of ours. The problem is, he doesn’t think he has a problem. How do I make him see this and help him get help and get sober before it is too late?” 

Ask Ken is our recovery segment where readers have an opportunity to “Ask Ken” anything in relation to love, sex, relationships and the addictions sometimes come with these subject matters. Readers are encouraged to ask (anonymously if they choose) about drug addiction, food addiction, alcoholism or any subject that deals with gay men and their connection between meth and sex. No question is off limits.
