Even in an area as historic and lively as Gadsden, the disease of addiction affects many lives. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that one in every ten Americans struggle with substance abuse. For every person who has become addicted, his or her family and friends also suffer. The cascade of heartache and despair is hitting the United States in epidemic proportions. It is easy to understand why so many feel that the situation is beyond help as their lives slip further down a destructive path.
There is hope, however, and help is available. One common aspect of addiction is the guilt and shame experienced by the user. These emotions can keep someone stuck in the cycle of using or work to motivate him or her to stop.
The best way to communicate concern to a loved one is to stage an intervention. This is a non-judgmental and loving way to show that you are worried about him or her, and that something needs to change.
Denial is closely tied to addiction and the person may not realize that anything is wrong at all. By having a conversation where you explain your view of the situation, you help to illuminate the person and get him or her moving in the right direction.
Many people consult a professional interventionist before attempting to converse with their loved one. The conversation can prove difficult and potentially volatile, which is often alleviated by the presence of a professional. He or she may help you prepare for the conversation, perform the event, and other helpful services to ensure the most effective and smooth experience.
