MMeridian, MS has a rich history in the state. Between 1890 and 1930, it was the largest city in the state and during the American Civil War, General William Tecumseh Sherman burned most of the city to the ground during the Battle of Meridian in 1864. Slowly, the city built itself back up to its current position as the sixth largest city in the state.
Like all cities in the country, Meridian has people who have an addiction problem and need help. Addiction is a disease without a cure. People who suffer from it will need to apply recovery tools to the rest of their lives if they want to live healthfully. When someone struggles with an addiction problem, it generally impacts the rest of their lives and the people around them especially.
Addiction is a disease of isolated people that isolates. In other words, a lot of people who turn to drugs already feel isolated in their lives and rabid drug use isolates them even more. In order to curb that, people need intensive treatment built around connectivity with others.
If your loved one is living in active addiction it could make your life hectic. However, you don’t have to feel powerless over the situation. You can hold an intervention to try and get your loved one into treatment. Interventions gather loved ones together in order to get the individual into treatment.
In order for the intervention to work effectively, people organizing it must not attack or pressure the individual into treatment. Attacking someone and demeaning them will only sink them further into the depths of the depressive addiction. However, remaining firm, yet loving is a great way to get them help.
Your family should also consider hiring an intervention specialist to help administer the process. An intervention specialist is an expert in addiction counseling and crisis management. They will help organize the event and act as the expert in trying to persuade your loved one to get help.
Even if the first intervention does not work, do not give up. It might take several, but they are worth it and your family is worth it. Every intervention plants a seed into the hearts of the individual and hopefully that seed will eventually grow into something that convinces them to go to treatment.
