We fight our own battle against stress and anxiety while waiting to see if a loved one has succumbed to an addiction. We watch and worry over symptoms and unusual behavior, helplessly looking for a way to stop a sibling or a teenager from experimenting with alcohol or drugs. They’re playing with fire, but they just don’t realize the precipice they’re approaching, and they’ll sail right over that edge without the aid of an intervention, of a meeting of family and friends carefully organized by a professional interventionist to break the dependence cycle.
Organize and Structure the Intervention
Every state has seen addictive substances claim victims. These individuals are caught in a moment of weakness or tempted by peer pressure to experiment with what they consider innocent fun. What they’re actually entering into is the gateway of a trap that can consume them, use them up as they’re locked into a spiral of abusive behavior, their bodies weakening under the strain of a drug that was never meant to be consumed day after day.
We can’t let our loved ones fall into this trap, and we know there are treatment options readily available for them. If they refuse those options, won’t listen to reason, we have to find help in structuring an intervention. In the state of Illinois, a state where over 5,500 deaths each year are related to drugs and alcohol (dhs.state), we find that help in the form of a Naperville Interventionist, a trained professional who is prepared to channel the love and compassion we hold for an addicted loved one. This experienced planner of interventions possesses the ability to coordinate the family members into a support team capable of awakening the subject of the families concern to their destructive and abusive ways, dismissing denial in favor of acceptance.
It takes planning and patience to build a strategy for an intervention. The interventionist is highly conscious that the support team may only have a single chance at delivering the loved one from the clutches of abuse, away from brain altering chemicals, and into the services of a treatment center. Even then the work isn’t over. Each family member and friend has to make a declaration of support, making their position clear that treatment must be followed through, must be completed, no matter how difficult the therapy or how tough the withdrawal pains become.
