How Do I Hold an Intervention?
First off the goal of your intervention should be to get your loved one to agree to enroll into rehab. Not to judge the addict. The best way to hold an intervention is to gather those close to the addict. Ask each person to prepare a scripted statement to read to the addict. These statements should include specific examples of how the addict's actions have hurt each person.
Helping the addict realize that their substance abuse problem takes a toll on more than just them could serve as the wakeup call they need. Many addicts want to get help; they just choose not to pursue help because they think they will have zero support from loved ones. Proving to them that their family and friends support them completing detox and rehab could convince them to enroll today.
It is not uncommon for an addict to need multiple wakeup calls. If the first intervention fails, hold another. Then another. Until your loved one is saved.
If you are having a hard time connecting with people then you should consider attending an AA or NA meeting. Meeting with other people who are also in recovery is good because they also understand what it is like.
