Try a Drug and Alcohol Intervention

This entry was posted in Alcohol Intervention, Drug Intervention and tagged on by .


If someone you love is struggling with substance abuse you can contact us to put together a drug and alcohol intervention. There’s no need to wait until the addict has possibly hit rock bottom, or before something even more terrible happens.

Many people assume that they are powerless to act when it comes to dealing with an addicted friend or family member.  Fortunately that isn’t true.  You are not powerless; you can do something, and you can do it now, with positive reinforcement and a Family First Intervention Specialist.

With the help of one of our intervention specialists, we can start the drug and alcohol intervention process. Time is precious and so much time has been wasted already that there isn’t another day that should go by without you taking the steps to help your loved one begin the process of overcoming substance abuse.

Don’t be discouraged when it comes to making this big step into working with one of our drug and alcohol interventionists; they are here to assist and guide everyone through the process. You’ve recognized that the addict isn’t going to be able to make an informed choice at this point, because an addicted brain is a toxic brain, so stepping up and taking control and helping is a vital way to assist.

We can’t stress how important that it is not to put together a drug intervention on your own without the help of one of our intervention specialists.  An intervention isn’t a magic wand, but it is a first step on the long road to recovery.  Interventions can be therapeutic for the whole family.  They can give everyone an opportunity to put a voice to their feelings in a constructive way that leads to positive results for everyone involved.  Just yelling at each other and recounting lists of every bad thing that was done isn’t the point of an intervention. The goal is to get the addict into treatment promptly.

When you put together an intervention for someone you care about with the help of a trained professional who specializes in interventions, you can help save a life.  Once addicts begin the recovery process, you can begin a new relationship with them too.  And that new relationship has the potential to be more amazing than you ever imagined; let an intervention be the catalyst.
