Intervention for the People of Santa Rosa
When a loved one is addicted to drugs and alcohol, it can be confusing, hard, and sad as far as when and how to help them. Most addicts deny that they have a problem to begin with. The addicts who do admit they have a substance abuse problem, most times, think it is only having negative outcomes on their life and nobody else’s. A Better Today urges you to act now, holding an intervention may just save your loved one’s life. An intervention can be a great way to get an addict to realize they have a problem and to, also, show that they will have support when choosing to deal with their drug or alcohol problem. Sometimes, addicts do not ask for them, so an intervention is the first step toward recovery for them.
Will an Intervention Help?
Drug addiction and alcoholism ruin lives on a regular basis. Staging an intervention for a loved one who has a substance abuse problem could be the best thing you can do for them. Many times, an addict does not come forward to ask for help. But not because they like having an addiction, it is because they feel ashamed or guilty about having an addiction. When you hold an intervention this may help the person in your live who is dealing with an addiction realize that they have support from those around them. And if an addict does not feel so isolated and alone they will, hopefully, look into getting the help they need. An addict might not be inclined to go to rehab because they may think they will not have any support. Which is why an intervention can show them that is not true.
How Do I Hold an Intervention?
Sometimes, it can be tricky to know how to hold a successful intervention. First off, the main point is to get the addict into the mindset that they need help. In order to do so, you will need to have a supportive, nonjudgmental atmosphere. If an addict feels he or she is being attacked or judged about their addiction, it will most likely end with them getting defensive and not wanting to get help. Do your best to point out the negative side effects of their drug or alcohol use without making them feel guilty. Having an interventionist present can be a great help. The interventionist will act as a neutral third-party who can rely the messages to both sides. This mediator can also help the addict realize that their family and friends have gathered because they care about the addict. A Better Today is willing to help you with any questions you may have on holding an intervention for someone you love. Call (707) 219-8222 to speak with someone.
