S Shakopee, Minnesota is located just east of the Dakota Indians former village Tintonwan, which stood for “village of the prairies.” The city is home to Minnesota’s largest outdoor amusement park, Valleyfair Amusement Park. It is also close to the Mall of America.
There’s never a shortage of activity in the Shakopee, MN. Despite that, everything in the area isn’t so amusing. One thrill that has cost the city a lot is drug addiction. People who use drugs often confuse use for the excitement and allure, but end up buried by the consequences.
People nearest to those struggling with addiction may not know how to help. One of the best ways to get someone help for addiction is by holding an intervention. Family members don’t need to feel powerless when they hold an intervention and potentially save a life.
Holding an intervention is a great way to communicate to your loved one the severity of their addiction. Often, people who are in active addiction do not realize the hurt they are causing other people. They may feel fine with the hurt they are causing themselves, but when they realize they are hurting other people they may want to get help.
During the intervention, it is important to make sure that you have prepared statements to read to the loved one. You don’t want to go in unprepared as it will surely be an emotional moment and just having an emotional free-for-all might not prove most effective.
Making sure that the site of the intervention is neutral and professional will be important as well. You don’t want to pick a place that triggers the individual.
When holding the intervention, it’s important to make sure that you don’t use threats or attack the individual. Doing this can send them further into the depths of their addiction. Another good tip for holding an intervention is to hire an intervention specialist.
An intervention specialist is an expert in crisis management and addiction counseling. If you have any questions about interventions or need any advice, contact us now: (866) 578-7471 .
