Even in a shining capital city like Salem, many people find that their lives are run by mind-altering substances. The disease of addiction grabs hold of people from all walks of life. If you are struggling with addictive, substances, do not feel ashamed. You are not alone.

In its simplest form, an intervention is a conversation between the person using and those concerned. It confronts the person about his or her using and behavior in a non-judgmental and loving way. It allows you the opportunity to show you care while conveying concern and making clear that something needs to change.
A professional interventionist can be especially helpful during this difficult time. The professional can help you prepare and execute the intervention, giving the event a greater chance of being successful.
