When to Get Help for Drug Addiction | Intervening Drug Abuse

For interventions we have a tough job because when our phone rings it isn't, hey my 17 year old's pulling straight A's and I just found a half of a joint under his room and he's on the Lacrosse team You're finding needles, there's legal issues, there's stealing, they're living in sometimes deplorable conditions, they're relentless, they're badgering you, they're demanding money, your kid's running the show

They're living rent-free, consequence-free, and moms and dads and the rest of the family are all scratching their head on what to do One of the hardest parts of being an Intervention Counselor is that we basically have to convince a family to go against every parental instinct they've ever had in helping their child, because if it were any other fatal illness, what they were doing would be effective But when it comes to addiction, feeding them comfort, providing them, allowing them to operate their addiction with impunity, is why they're in the position that they're in A family doesn't have to wait for them to want it, they don't have to wait for them to hit bottom The family can step in and do something before it gets bad

A family systems, environment, and behavioral modification, all three have to come together You know, the majority of the people that call us, this isn't their first rodeo When you listen to all the failed attempts, it's so repairable But yet, because families try this so many times their own way, by the time they get on the phone with us, many of the times they don't even believe what we're telling them is true, because they don't think it's possible because they've lost all hope Nothing is going to get better staying the same
