Alcohol and Drug Intervention

March 27, 2008

Drug addiction always ends up hurting those close to an addict. It is often those closest to the addict that have the best chance to help them get addiction recovery.

But those close to the addict are often hesitant to get involved. All to often it is tragedy that finally brings drug intervention to the forefront. It is often difficult to know what to say, and when to say it. Those who truly care for the addict can handle the drug intervention with the advice of a professional. The most important thing is that the addict hears that he needs help from those around him or her.Prior to the Drug Intervention
Gather all those people that have a strong relationship with the addict. Make sure that this includes people that the addict will respect, and whose opinions the addict will value. Discuss the concerns of each member of the drug intervention. Talk about things like who will cover specific topics. This may require multiple meetings. Once all the details are arranged, have one final meeting. Just prior to the drug intervention have a trial run. Make sure that everyone knows their role by the time that final meeting ends.

Drug intervention Day
When the day of the actual drug intervention arrives make sure everyone is present to meet with the addict. It is the emotional outpouring of the drug intervention that holds the power. Make sure that the person who is guiding the course of the drug intervention keeps everything on track and moving forward. It is important that it doesn’t dissolve into bickering and backbiting.

Once the addict has heard the concerns of those that care, give the addict the opportunity to open up. Listen to the addicts concerns. Remember they are the ones that this is all about. But, do not let them sway you. The next stop for the addict should be our substance abuse program. Contact us in advance to make arrangements.
