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 Maryland addiction 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 addiction interventionist in Philadelphia or Pennsylvania
is invited to serve as a guide and educator before, during, and after the intervention.
