The word intervention conjures up both fear and hope at the same time. For those who are struggling with a loved one whose drug or alcohol addiction is wreaking havoc on relationships, health and family resources, the typical feeling is one of fear. Fear that the intervention may fail, that it will make the situation worse or that the addict will have a bad reaction. This emotion is often a deterrent that leaves many family members wallowing in addiction for many years. Sadly, this delay can turn out to be fatal for some.

On the other hand, when someone’s addiction has progressed to the degree that they are no longer able to help themselves, an intervention is often the only hope that they have of overcoming the devastation of addition.

What is an Intervention?

When addiction poses a risk to the health and wellbeing of both the addict and their loved ones, family and friends often get together and make plans to confront the user. This confrontation is called an intervention. It is designed to bring awareness to the problems that the addiction has caused and to encourage the individual to get treatment. It is a deliberate attempt to stop drug use. Since drug addiction is a condition that requires medical treatment, rehabilitation is always the ultimate goal of an intervention.

Staging and Intervention

An intervention can be a lifesaving event for your loved one. As such, it should be carefully planned in order to ensure success. Getting your loved one to agree to enter a treatment program is the first measure of success.
