Does My Loved One Need an Intervention?
Witnessing a loved one struggle with a drug or alcohol addiction can be the worst. You want to help, and may have tried, but don’t know how or they were unresponsive. Holding an intervention can act as the wakeup call your loved one needs. An intervention is a gathering of an addict’s friends and family who want to express concern and support.
You are not gathering to criticize or condemn your loved one. The goal of your intervention should be to get your loved one to admit that they have a problem and need professional help. If the addict feels that he or she is being attacked by everyone they will bottle up and not want to hear what you have to say.
Prove to your loved one that people still care about them. Denial is a common theme with many people who have substance abuse problems. But often times, it is possible that your loved one has been waiting for an intervention. They need to know they have support to change their ways.
