Most interventions address “addictive disease.” The addict’s drug of choice is, for the most part, less important than the fact that their use/abuse of the substance has become so damaging in their life and the lives of those who care for him/her. The same can be said for those suffering from the process addictions, such as gambling or spending, as well as those with an eating disorder.

Families often say they have “reached the end of their rope” in dealing with the addict. This is usually because all of the attention and energy has been directed at changing the addict. The power of addiction intervention is two-fold; it focuses on influencing the addict to seek help and it informs those around the addict how they can become a part of that person’s solution, and stop being a part of the problem.

Don’t let anyone tell you that there is nothing you can do. While you can’t cure the addict; you can’t control the addict; and you surely did not cause them to be addicted – you CAN be the alarm system which pierces the denial that keeps them in their addiction. You CAN provide the opportunity to get the help they need to reclaim their health and quite possibly save their life.

Addiction intervention is a clear path for those in crisis – for the addict…and those who care about the addict.
