Thousand Oaks is a city in southeastern Ventura County. It’s a safe place to live, it was ranked the 4th safest among cities with a population greater than 100,000 in the United States by the FBI’s 2013 Uniform Crime Reports. its education system is one of the top in California.
Thousand Oaks is considered a high income area. However, addiction doesn’t discriminate, as it can affect those from even the safest and richest areas. But just as anyone can become an addict, anyone can get healthy if they are willing to put in the work.
Unfortunately, many people who suffer from addiction don’t get treatment. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, approximately 8.3 percent of people who needed treatment received it. That’s too low of a number.
In order to effectively deal with people who struggle with addiction, people need to view addiction as a disease, not a moral defect. That way, a greater investment will happen in treating it.
Holding an intervention may seem daunting. It’s difficult to confront someone who has manipulated and abused you into doing something they don’t want to do. Accordingly, it’s recommended that the family hire an intervention specialist to help make sure the process goes smoothly.
An intervention specialist is trained in crisis management and helps people to come together and communicate effectively their hurts and desires. The specialist also serves as an impartial third party, which is vital in the process.
One of the most important components to an intervention is to make sure that the people involved create an affirming, caring environment. If the environment isn’t rooted in love and support and destabilizes into yelling, the abuser can submerge deeper into their addiction.
Though it’s hard, an intervention can really go a long way in helping people see the extent of their abuse. A lot of the time people who are in the midst of addiction don’t know that they are hurting others. They think they are only hurting themselves. Stop the unnecessary pain, get help now.
