Intervention Center

When a loved one is addicted to drugs and alcohol, it can be a scary time for those who love them the most. It’s especially scary when the addict refuses to get help for themselves, even though it’s apparent that the next time they reach for the drugs or alcohol could be their last. Every time one hears about a famous person dying from overdoses reminds those around the addict that their loved one could be next. That’s why it’s important to find an interventionist in San Francisco who knows how to reach the addict and get them the help they need most.

Does Your Loved One Need an Intervention Center?

It’s hard to imagine that a loved one could go the road of drug and alcohol addiction to where they need intervention help. But often, the addict doesn’t recognize (or admit to) their addiction even though everyone around them does.

Maybe they say that they can quit anytime, but don’t want to. Maybe they have had to try to hide their addiction and lie about it, but those around them know the addict is still getting high. Maybe family members have been kidding themselves and believing that their loved one can handle the drugs or alcohol, or maybe they believed that the addict came clean, only to be confronted with the reality of addiction with either a failed drug test or an overdose.

Signs For An Intervention

Here are some of the signs that your loved one needs intervention help:

=

Taking drugs or alcohol frequently to get high

=

Ignoring important responsibilities to family and friends

=

Hiding drug and alcohol use

=

Lying about drug and alcohol use

=

Never having any money because it's all going for the drugs and alcohol

=

Refusal to seek help for alcohol or drug use

=

Promising to cut back or stop using alcohol and drugs, only to start them or hiding their use

=

Getting into car accidents because of driving under the influence

=

Getting so high or drunk that they pass out or can't remember things

=

Failing drug tests for school or work

=

Getting fired from work because of alcohol or drug use

=

Getting put on probation or expelled from school because of alcohol or drug use

These signs are by no means all the signs that the loved one has a drug or alcohol problem, but if a loved one shows any of these signs, it’s important to seek intervention drug rehab and get them help.

What Happens During an Intervention?

When a loved one doesn’t want to seek help for their drug or alcohol problem, it’s important for the family to seek intervention help for families. At the intervention rehab centers, the experts look to get as many friends and family members involved so that they can help convince the addict to see that they’re addicted and need help.

Before the intervention, all family members — both immediate and extended family members –, as well as caring friends, meet and discuss the situation with us. At the intervention meeting, loved ones learn that addiction is a disease and not a failure in willpower or character. They learn that addicts are under the power of the drug or alcohol and are not themselves.

The intervention becomes not a time to blame the addict but instead a time to show how much they care about them. Intervention can be difficult and emotionally charged, but it is a good place for the addict to see that they have a real problem that must be addressed. When the addict finally agrees to treatment, it is the first step in the right direction, but the addict can’t do it alone. Without a strong support system of friends and family helping them, the addict may relapse into drug or alcohol use again.

Why It’s Important to Seek Intervention Now

If one is considering intervention for a family member or friend, now is the time to put the intervention into action. The addict will not get better on their own and may slide even further into the deepening well of addiction if nothing is done. In fact, the addiction can drive the person into more reckless behavior and even worse drugs, should they find that their drug of choice isn’t working as well for them as they would like. Drug and alcohol addiction also doesn’t just affect the addict — it affects the entire family.
