C Chelmsford, MA is a medium-sized, historic city. It has a population of approximately 33, 802 people and was ranked as the 28th best place to live in the United States by Money magazine. In such a peaceful, prosperous place a lot of people wouldn’t consider the threat of addiction. However, as the saying goes: looks can be deceiving. And Chelmsford is no different than any other city in a country filled with rampant drug use.
If anything, the accessibility factor goes up in places where there’s more wealth. Drug addiction feeds off of one thing: isolation. People can face isolation anywhere independent of age, income or race. Given the spawn of the Internet age, perceived connection versus actual connection drives people deeper into the abyss of loneliness and isolation.
We are seeing an addiction epidemic. People turn to drugs and turn away from the ones they love. Loved ones may feel powerless when their family member dwindles in the depressive lows of addiction. However, they don’t need to feel powerless. They can go about making a change; they can hold an intervention.
Interventions are a great way to help your loved one get into treatment. When people are in active addiction, they may feel all alone. They may feel like they have burned bridges with the very people they care about the most. To offset this feeling and motivate people to seek out care, family members should hold an intervention.
An intervention gathers loved ones together with the hope of getting them into a treatment center. The most effective interventions help the loved one realize they are hurting others with their addiction in a way that’s non-judgmental. An intervention that pressures the loved one or attacks will most likely drive them further into the depths of despair and addiction.
Even if the intervention does not get the individual to seek out help, do not lose hope. Interventions can help plant a seed in the loved one’s heart to get them to get help eventually down the road. Do not give up.
