Drug Abuse Intervention
True love & true friendship means doing the right thing,
even when sometimes it means doing the hardest thing.
When your loved one depends on substances to get through the day, and no matter what the circumstances or the consequences, continues to use and abuse these substances, they are suffering from drug abuse. A person who is suffering from drug abuse is like a person walking around with blinders on: they can only see right in front of them and not the ramifications of their actions on those around them, especially their loved ones and family. While under the influence of the drug that they are abusing, they do not feel the pain that they are causing others. And usually the only way to get them to remove these self imposed blinders so they can see, feel and understand once again is through a professional drug abuse intervention.
A drug abuse intervention doesn't have to be a confrontational or difficult process. By choosing to hold a professional intervention led by a licensed accredited professional interventionist your loved one will be far less likely to get upset or defensive during the intervention process.
The goal of a professional drug abuse intervention is to facilitate a shift in attitude on the part of the drug abuser: one in which they accept responsibility for their actions and admit that they have a problem that has become so consuming and overwhelming that they can no longer manage it on their own. The intervention, when performed by a caring and skilled professional interventionist, will open your loved one's eyes to the truth, while providing them with a support team of family members and professionals who will help them throughout their recovery process and provide them with the tools needed to break the vicious cycle of drug abuse and chemical dependency.
Of course you want your loved one to get better and return to a normal, healthy, and productive life but trying to hold an intervention without the use of a licensed accredited professional interventionist is never a good idea and could potentially cause your loved one to become very upset or even violent.
