If you or someone you love is struggling with substance abuse, reach out. The situation may feel hopeless, but it not. There is help available and people ready to guide you to a life filled with health and happiness.
The best way to help someone who has become addicted to drugs or alcohol is to stage an intervention. An intervention is a conversation where the person is confronted about his or her using and subsequent behavior.
This non-judgmental and loving approach helps the person realize that there is a problem and others are in fact affected by his or her behavior. Denial, guilt and shame are a certainty with someone abusing substances, and this conversation helps break the person out of these vicious negative thought patterns.
Many people find the aid and guidance of a professional interventionist especially helpful. A professional can help those involved prepare statements, rehearse and, in general, understand what to expect and what to avoid. The professional may sit in on the actual event and help guide the conversation and diffuse any emotional outbursts that may occur.
