The disease of addiction devastates many American lives. Substance abuse causes torturous negative effects to a person mentally, physically, and spiritually. Negative consequences are varied and numerous. The damage depends on the substance of abuse, duration of use, genetics, and many other factors. Alcohol, the most commonly abused substance, can cause severe harm to such organs as the liver, brain and heart, eventually leading to irreparable damage and possibly death.
Every drug varies slightly but all substances of abuse have two outcomes in common, addiction and death. Addiction is disease that requires medical treatment to put in remission. Do not feel ashamed if you are struggling with substance abuse. The first and often most difficult step is admitting you have a problem. Remember, you are not alone and help is available.
If you feel stuck and helpless watching a loved one abuse drugs or alcohol, you are not alone. Many people today find themselves in the same position and are at a loss about how to help the person. Staging an intervention is a great way to help nudge a person struggling with substance abuse issues in the right direction.
An intervention is a non-judgmental way of letting a person know that you love and care for them, but are concerned. The intervention is essentially a conversation that confronts the person in a constructive and helpful way about his or her using. Most often the person who is the subject of the intervention will subsequently decide to get help. However, if he or she does not seek treatment that does not mean the intervention was a failure. The very act of trying to communicate with the person introduces the idea of recovery and gets the person aimed in the right direction.
