drug abuse Intervention
An intervention is just as much, if not more, for the family as it is for the loved one. The addict cannot get high without additional resources. People, places, and things (such as money) are needed to maintain one’s addiction. Despite how they may feel, the family has full control of the situation. They just have to be shown and taught how to apply that control.
Drug Addiction Intervention
Drug problems affect not only the user but the individual’s entire network of friends and family. Several family-oriented drug interventions have been developed over the years to provide concerned loved ones with a structured, solution-oriented process to help motivate someone who has a problem with drug or alcohol abuse to seek help. Family, friends, and others involved in the person’s life use the intervention to demonstrate the extent of the effects of substance abuse or alcoholism and related behaviors.
A successful intervention is an opportunity for an addicted individual to accept help from concerned loved ones and take the first step toward recovery. Often, an interventionist is invited to serve as a guide and educator before, during, and after the intervention.
Alcohol Abuse Intervention
Alcohol abuse intervention is one of the most common types of intervention we perform, and alcoholics can be stubborn and difficult to deal with, as you might know if you have one in the family. Since alcohol is legal, it is often harder for the alcohol abuser to view its use as a problem. This can make an alcoholism intervention very difficult without professional assistance.
Many alcoholics do not view their addiction problem to be on the same level as that of other drug users, particularly those who use some of the harder black-market drugs. The pitfalls that could occur during an alcoholism intervention are why you need a professional by your side to guide you through the process.
