Arizona Substance Abuse Help for Families

Arizona has a higher rate of substance abuse compared to the national average and has seen a steady increase in primary treatment admissions for drugs such as stimulants, marijuana, heroin and other opiates. As a result, Arizona is one of the states where there are more drug-induced deaths than those caused by auto accidents, indicating a great need for increased drug and alcohol interventions and treatment.

Mental Health & Addiction Resources for Arizona Families
Help! My Son / Daughter Has A Mental Health Issue But We Need to Intervene In Their Drug Use

A mental health issue, on top of drug & alcohol abuse, is common. It complicate the approach you must take when confronting the addict about their dependence issues. As families are well aware, a loved one with a mental health or emotional disorder can react negatively or even violently when confronted. It is for this and so many other reasons that we urge families to educate themselves on what it takes to perform an intervention for an addict with mental health issues.

Mental Health & Addiction Require Dual Diagnosis Treatment in Arizona

Dual Diagnosis – is the term for cases of addiction that also include an underlying secondary diagnosis — usually a mental health disorder or behavioral disorder. This can include mild disorders such as seasonal depression, anxiety, or mild bipolar disorder or they can include more serious mental health conditions like narcissistic personality disorder, schizophrenia, and acute mood disorders. Dual Diagnosis patients require special attention that only dual diagnosis addiction treatment centers are capable of providing.

Arizona Addiction Stats and Facts

The Facts and Statistics Provided Give a High Level View of Substance Abuse & Addiction Trends in Arizona

Before we get into how our Arizona interventions work, let’s take a look at a few statistics and facts – provided by the CDC and SAMHSA – that show how big the issue of substance abuse is in the Grand Canyon State:

Rehab Admissions in Arizona by Drug Type

A look at Arizona’s addiction treatment centers will give you an idea of which substances are plaguing the state the most. According to a report by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the following substances, in order, were the primary reasons for admissions into Maricopa County, Arizona treatment centers in 2013

The only item on the list that consistently rose in prevalence from 2007 to 2013 was opioids. Although Marijuana was only fourth on the above list, it by far has the highest rate of lifetime use. Arizona high school surveys from 2003 to 2013 repeatedly found that anywhere from 42 to 48 percent of respondents have used marijuana at least once in their life.

Ecstasy & MDMA Use in Arizona

Although not in the top six, the use of MDMA (ecstasy) among young Arizonans is fairly worrisome. In 2013, about 7 percent of Arizona high school students reported using ecstasy within the previous 30 days. Additionally, nearly 6 percent of students reported taking steroid pills or shots without a prescription, and 4.5 percent said they had sniffed glue within that same time frame.

Arizona Alcohol Intervention: A Unique Process

Although it may appear that alcoholics and drug addicts suffer similar consequences from their substance of choice, there are subtle differences. This is why it’s important to enlist the help of a professional interventionist who knows how to recognize and address the unique signs and behaviors of alcoholism.

What appears to be normal alcohol use by your loved one can quickly develop into a dependency. Therefore, if your loved one is continually abusing alcohol and won’t agree to receive treatment, an intervention in Arizona should be the answer. Family First is able to provide interventions in Arizona in the comfort of your own home within a couple of days after your first call to us.

 

Our goal is to help usher your loved one to a place where he or she accepts responsibility and then enters treatment. The physical and mental consequences of alcoholism are very dangerous, so the sooner you seek help, the better off your loved one will be.

Alcoholic Father in Arizona
"I lost a lot to alcohol, but the time I lost with my son when he was younger was the highest price paid. But the time I spend with him as a sober father is so much better and that is the father I want him to see and know."
Arizona Drug Intervention
"I couldn't imagine the thought of our daughter growing up without a dad. That scared me enough to seek help from someone else when I didn't know how to help my husband."

Arizona Drug Intervention: Get Help from a Professional

Families should not try to perform an Arizona drug intervention without the help of a trained counselor. We know that your loved one’s drug problem can be overwhelming and devastating to the entire family, but don’t try to force a solution by yourselves.

Instead, let a professional interventionist from Family First assess your loved one and your family’s situation and then start working toward some answers. Our Arizona drug interventionists will train your family in a proactive manner, and they will help you approach your loved one in a non-confrontational way.

After your interventionist has determined the level of care your loved one needs, they will move the intervention in positive direction to the point where they help connect the struggling individual to the most suitable treatment center.

 

After the Arizona Intervention Concludes

Once we’ve completed the Arizona addiction intervention and your loved one has accepted responsibility, it’s time to proceed to the most appropriate treatment center for his or her specific needs, whether in-state or out. With our Arizona intervention services, we will provide your family with all the tools necessary to bring your loved one back from addiction and turn your hope into reality.

Why Choose

Family First Intervention?

Addicts and alcoholics have taught their families everything they know about their addiction and how to handle it. We understand that a single person addicted to drugs or alcohol is easier to help than 5 or more family members who are addicted to their loved one through codependency. We understand the dynamics of a complex family system that has been hijacked by their loved one through emotional manipulation.

Families tend to focus their efforts on talking their loved ones into treatment or waiting for them to go on their own. We help educate the family on how they have made the addiction more comfortable and in a way that does not help the addicted person get well. We can only change what we have control over, and that is our own behavior.

Our drug and alcohol intervention programs provide families the professional assistance needed to make the best decisions about their loved ones. Our counselors work to ensure that your loved one and your family system have the best possible chance of long-term success.
