Intervention for the Family-Addiction

An intervention is a caring and deliberate attempt by members of the family and loved ones to help the alcoholic or drug addicted person get help for his or her problem. Interventions are a structured and loving process organized and facilitated by a trained professional who guides a meeting between family members, friends and the prospective client.

The process is meant to show the prospective client in a loving and caring manner how their behavior is affecting the people that love them the most. An interventionist can help the prospective client understand the importance of changing his or her behavior and getting them into a treatment center.
