AAbilene, Texas gets described as “the Future Great City of West Texas” and given its population boom over the years, it’s easy to see why. Abilene boasts a population of approximately 136,000 people. The top employer in the city is Dyess Air Force Base, which employs approximately 5406 people.
Given the military’s strictness it can seem hard to imagine that drug addiction would play a big role in the town. However, drug addiction impacts every city in the nation. There’s not a city that doesn’t struggle with it.
The most at risk group for addiction are those who encounter isolation and those who have experienced trauma. People in these two camps, which can certainly overlap, face the greatest risk for developing an addiction. Humans need connection. It is a principal part of humanity to connect to one another. If a human gets deprived of human connection, they will generally try and find a way to connect.
Sadly, a lot of people who feel disconnect will try and fill that human need with inorganic means. This path can lead someone to try and do drugs in order to fill that human sized hole. For people who have gone through trauma, they may feel like they need to escape from the pain they endured.
People who seek out an escape through drugs generally end up making their lives worse off than it was before. If you know someone in active addiction, you don’t have to lose hope. You can hold an intervention for them.
An intervention gathers loved ones together with the express aim to get the person abusing drugs into treatment. The best interventions work without judgement. You want to act in kindness, yet with firmness.
If you can hire an intervention specialist, we recommend you do that. An intervention specialist is an expert in crisis management and will help make sure the intervention does not barrel out of control. They also serve as a neutral third party, which is important to have in the process. They can provide the objective perspective in the conversation.
Though there isn’t a cure for addiction, treatment methods have proven to work wonders for those willing to try. Addiction doesn’t have to be a dead end. It can in fact provide a new beginning.
