The holidays can be a difficult time for people suffering from addiction, what a better gift than to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas with a loved one who has been struggling to stay sober. How do you know when it is time for an intervention or better yet, how do you approach someone you love that you suspect is an alcoholic or drug addict?
Alcohol is the second most addicting substance in our Nation and just because it is legal does not mean it is safe. Another silent killer is prescription medication; both substances are highly addictive and fatal. Contemplating a solution and looking for a way to help someone you love out of addiction is a difficult decision that has a simple solution. Here are a set of questions to help make the decision that could potentially save the life of someone you love:
Have you ever lied to cover up someone else's alcohol or drug use?
Do you ever threaten to leave a loved one for drinking or using drugs?
Have you been hurt, scared or embarrassed by a user's behavior?
Do you feel angry, confused, scared or depressed most of the time due to a loved ones drug or alcohol problem?
IF YOU HAVE ANSWERED YES TO ANY OF THE ABOVE QUESTIONS, MOST LIKELY IT IS TIME FOR AN INTERVENTION!
HOW DOES AN INTERVENTION WORK?
The first step is to call our toll free number: 866-888-4911 and talk to one of our specialist to guide you through the intervention process. From there we will help evaluate the appropriate steps to take towards getting your loved one into treatment. Our qualified team will walk the family through steps towards a better life.
Meet with the family or person requesting the intervention to help develop a healthy set of boundaries and develop a bottom where the individual suffering from addiction will no longer be comfortable living in their disease.
Find a treatment center that can address all the addicts/alcoholics needs and give appropriate care to set the stage of developing a long lasting recovery.
Address the family to ensure everyone can stand by their healthy boundaries and provide a loving and supportive bottom line where the disease of addiction can no longer consume the functioning of every day life.
Drugs and alcohol are not the only addictions people suffer from: eating disorders, depression, OCD, hoarding, abusive relationships these issues can also have devastating and life altering results.
We also have an aftercare program to help the addict through their first year of recovery. Remember treatment does equal recovery; they are two separate issues and need to be addressed in a manner that is appropriate for each individual. After detoxing from drugs and alcohol the real work begins; after-treatment programs are not the same for everyone. Addicts are unique and intelligent people; we address everyone with love and support. Achieving a long, healthy sober life is our main goal at Intervention 911.
