The biggest misunderstanding that we see with families and spouses in regard to interventions for their loved ones is the tendency to wait and hope that their loved one can somehow get better on their own. Another equally common misconception is that the right time for an intervention is after your loved one has already hit rock bottom. Tragically, at this point it is often too late and sometimes loved ones don't make it. The lucky ones who do pull through after a late stage intervention and treatment still have return to confront the damage they have caused their loved ones, and themselves.
There are unscrupulous people advertising themselves as addiction care experts and making outlandish claims, such as having a 95% success rate with their interventions. Hopefully your common sense will tell you to dismiss these boasts as hyperbole and only consider working with someone who doesn't employ such chicanery.
With increasing frequency we hear stories, whether on the news or locally, about families who have lost a loved one to substance abuse, yet claim they had no idea that their loved one ever had a drug or alcohol problem.
In these very sad cases outsiders will often ask, “How did they not know their loved one was suffering from substance abuse? Could they really have missed all the warning signs?” In reality, often what happened was their loved one created such an elaborate smokescreen of lies and deception that the warning signs may have been hard to recognize. Their loved one's addiction became so strong that it literally controlled them and forced them into lying, cheating, or even stealing to keep getting more of their drug of choice. Sometimes they can learn to lie so well that you would literally need a lie detector to know if they were telling you the truth or not.
