The Intervention Group’s founder, Dr. Brian Moore, is often quoted saying “When you don’t intervene, the world will.”  Family intervention is life-saving for the addict and key to rebuilding the family’s health and happiness.  When a family intervention is held, several important things happen.

The addict’s addiction is interrupted and not allowed to progress in the same manner.  The family has almost always developed a pattern of co-dependency and enabling.  This behavior has unintentionally supported the addiction.  Family intervention helps the family identify these behaviors and implement change.  While the family cannot cure the addiction, family members can learn how to express their love and concern for the addict in healthier ways that do not contribute to the problem.

Family intervention typically begins with a phone call to talk about “the problem”, meaning the addict and their addictive behavior.  This is understandable and necessary, but not sufficient.  It is equally important to discuss the family system and the interaction with the addict’s behavior.

Typical enabling behavior includes covering for the addict.  People close to the addict may find themselves lying to cover up the impact of the addictive behavior; they may lie to other family members, to friends or employers.  This is done because we do not want “to make it worse” for the addict if others knew the truth.  We want to protect the addict from alienating family members, losing friendships or jobs.  In the end, this only protects the addiction, not the addict.
