Trying to conquer substance abuse is an uphill battle. Watching it happen to someone you love is like seeing someone on a slippery slope. Your loved one keeps falling down. It can get to a point where it is impossible to get up again. You don’t want to see the one you love continue to struggle. You’ve tried to make your loved one understand that something is wrong. However, a victim of addiction can only see the addiction. Substance abuse doesn’t leave room for anything else in life. It clouds a person’s judgment. It creates a chemical dependency that fills a victim of substance abuse with the need for more. It’s a vicious cycle with no end in sight. You need help to help your loved one to break free from substance abuse. A St. Paul intervention program can give you hope.
A St. Paul intervention program is intended to help a victim of addiction to take the first step toward getting better. The person you love needs to admit that addiction is getting in the way of a fulfilling life. You won’t be on your own during an intervention. There is strength in numbers as you gather together a group of people who care about your loved one. Your intervention specialist will guide the discussion during the intervention, leading the way and trying to keep tensions from escalating. The victim of addiction needs to know that an intervention is happening because everyone wants the best for him or her. Once your loved one finally says there is a problem, a program will already be set up to be recommended for treatment. Learn more when you go to Drew Horowitz & Associates, LLC.
