Drug Abuse Intervention

Drug Abuse Intervention

The hardest types of drug intervention are those where the addict abuses drugs heavily. Once an addict reaches the point of abusing any heavy narcotics or substance, they are considered severe addicts and need an intervention.  A drug intervention is not easy and the interventionist, friends, and family involved in the drug intervention will have a hard and emotional road ahead of them. This doesn’t mean that the drug intervention will be impossible. In fact, when an addict is too deep into their habit, they have lost track of their life, might realize they are in a dire situation and just need that push in the right direction toward rehabilitation.

 

The Emotional Dependency

Drug Abuse is not just physical, it is also emotional. Those dependent on drugs find it emotionally straining and believe it is not possible for them to live their lives sober. In most cases, severe drug abuse is caused by a chemical imbalance which manifests into emotional pain. Addicts will then rely on their drug intake to help them deal with daily issues, regardless of their severity.  These individuals will typically lack the emotional control and ability to regulate their lives without drugs.  The good news is drug interventions can and do work.

 

Getting Started

Before hiring an interventionist, you need to ensure the drug intervention will take.  Though it is frightening to admit your loved one has an addiction problem, drug intervention only work when you are able to admit to yourself that your loved one does indeed have a substance abuse problem.

 

Look for signs of drug usage that include:

•  Excessive mood swings

•  Unreliability
