When is an intervention necessary?

Someone you know has a problem with alcohol or drug addiction. They may be hiding the problem. Or denying that it exists. But you can see it. And feel it. In fact, sometimes it feels like you’re the only one suffering because of it. Alcohol, Drugs and other behavioral problems can destroy families and end careers. Family members, employees, colleagues and company executives can find themselves trapped by such disorders. Their denial of the problem and ambivalence about treatment blurs their reality. Many people in these situations refuse help from loved ones, friends, or co-workers. This is where intervention can be useful.

You don’t have to feel alone any longer. You can get help through a process called intervention, which brings family, friends, co-workers and other supporters together with a skilled, professional facilitator to confront the addicted person in an honest and supportive way. Intervention is the process of presenting reality to such individuals in a receivable way. It is an invitation — not a confrontation — to accept help. When an intervention is done correctly, it can convince these people to finally seek help.
