The Empire State. Home of The Big Apple and the City that Never Sleeps. New York is a one-of-a-kind state that offers everything to tourists and residents alike, from the glitzy terrain of New York City to the picturesque farming communities and suburbs of New York.
Unfortunately, various addictions have also found a home in New York and have caused several to lose their lives, especially with the more widespread exposure to opioids in the last few years.
New York has more than quadrupled the number of deaths from drug overdoses from 2000 to 2019 and in 2020 alone, as there were 565 more drug overdose deaths than in 2019, with 2,062 deaths compared to 1,497. As for the harmful effects of alcohol, 140,557 Americans nationwide die from alcohol abuse each year and over half of Americans have increased their alcohol consumption since the COVID lockdowns, in which New York experienced lengthy lockdowns.
Making the choice to intervene in the addiction habits of your loved one is not easy to do but know that our professional interventionists are there every step of the way to ensure you and your loved one are treated with respect, love, and hope.
How does an Intervention in New York Work?
No one looks forward to the realization that their loved one is suffering from an addiction, whether it is drugs, alcohol, eating disorders, gambling, or others. However, taking the proactive approach to enlighten your loved one of the harm their addiction is causing themselves and their family/friends may be the best way to move toward recovery.
An intervention is a staged meeting of loved ones, under the direction of a professional interventionist, to confront peacefully, but firmly the addiction of their loved ones, and how help is necessary. It could be confronting the person personally with everyone sharing their love and desire for the person to get help or it could even be through a workshop where everyone, including the addicted person, can express how the addiction makes them feel.
Our proprietary invitation-to-change method, the Breakfree Intervention method, has proven very successful in allowing family and friends to take part in the intervention, a combination of a family-infused invention and a long-term family recovery curriculum.
