Family Intervention – Help that starts now
To intervene in another persons addiction can feel very uncomfortable. Family, friends and employers are often deeply affected by addiction, as one family member said,
‘We have hit rock bottom, we are sick and tired of being sick and tired’
Therefore, intervention can be more about helping those who are inadvertently affected by drugs, alcohol and other addictions. Families and employers that decide to work with an interventionist are far better equipped to help the person who is addicted, and this often leads to earlier recovery.
‘We all know that you cannot help someone until they ask for help, or hit rock bottom!’
This statement could not be further from the truth. Addiction and alcoholism function behind a layer of denial, a combination of self repression, blackout and euphoric recall symptoms which leave a person unable to accept their problem.
A common response from those in addiction is to blame life circumstances on their behaviour, yet family , or colleagues, that decide to intervene will drastically change these dynamics, encouraging safe and prompt entry into treatment and recovery.
