Realizing that an intervention might be necessary to help a loved one realize their addiction has become out of control isn’t an easy decision to make. But it is a decision that will help determine if they will end their addiction or if their addiction will end them.
In California, the statistics don’t lie that drug and alcohol abuse are rising trends we are dealing with as a state. About 16.6% of adults over 18 in California admit to binge drinking at least once a month, and there are, on average, 15,443 deaths annually from excessive alcohol abuse.
As for drug abuse in California, marijuana, opioid pain medications, cocaine, and heroin are the mainly illicit and heavily abused drugs in the state, with 3.2 deaths from opioid use for every 100,000 people, followed by 1.4 deaths from cocaine and .9% from fentanyl.
If you are worried about a loved one and their drug and/or alcohol abuse, an intervention might be the next step to take. As you come together with your loved one’s family, friends, co-workers, and community members, guided by a professional interventionist, you can be part of a united front to encourage your loved one that the time is now to get help.
How does Addiction Intervention in California Work?
An intervention is not one size fits all but caters to what particular help your loved one needs for their addiction. Whether it is drug or alcohol abuse, an eating disorder, or mental health issues, our guidance comes through professional interventionists and healthcare specialists of California who know what will work best for your loved one.
Considering what might be most suitable as an intervention for your loved one, our California interventionists will coordinate with those close to the person addicted to determine the best course of action. You could come forward as a group, directed by the interventionist, to confront the person peacefully and assuredly to let them know how their addiction is affecting each person. Or, there can be the option of taking part in a workshop led by an interventionist that allows for discussing the behavior of the addicted person and ways to get help.
No matter what intervention is performed, the goal of an Intervention in California is to help a person feel respected and dignified as they grapple with the difficult truth that they need help for their out-of-control and dangerous addiction.
