Have you tried over and over to talk to a child, grandchild, or other loved one about their drug or alcohol use? Have you been met with excuse after excuse, or false promises that the person will get sober? Or are you afraid to even bring up the subject of treatment because you are afraid of what the person might say or do?
Don’t be Afraid to Talk To Your Loved One about Their Addiction
Being faced with the overwhelming task of talking to a loved one about addiction is a job that no one wants to have. Because of this, loved ones keep quiet and don’t tell their family member how they feel, and many people in need of treatment don’t get it.
That’s where intervention services are beneficial. Our professionals can go with you to talk to your loved one. We can walk you through the process and help you figure out what to say. We can give you the options for treatment and encourage you as you confront your loved one.
Interventions are dramatized on TV and in movies, but they usually are not that way. Just knowing what words to say and being armed with a great plan and the support of another person can be all it takes to convince someone they need help. Our interventionists are professionals who work with people with addiction every day; they can quickly assess the situation and help diffuse a crisis, or provide a little extra encouragement to accept help when necessary.
