You’ve tried everything to get your loved one to stop using drugs or alcohol, but nothing has worked. Pleas, threats, avoidance, attempts to control it – they all just seem to make things worse. Maybe now is the time for an intervention.
What Is an Intervention?
An intervention is a proactive and positive step that family members, friends and others can take to help someone whose substance abuse is destroying their relationships and lives. So, before going any further, start by thinking about intervention as one of the best approaches you can take to assist your loved one to get help for addiction.

Intervention is a process to help convince the addict that now is the time to accept help and go to treatment. For many people, intervention is the first step in the drug rehabilitation process. The overarching goal of intervention involves eliciting the commitment from the addict to stick with treatment so that they are better able to learn and apply the fundamentals of recovery, change family dynamics, and show that recovery is possible.
Who Does the Intervention?
While concerned family members and friends may think they can stage an intervention on their own, the personal connection, emotions and circumstances can make it difficult to effectively carry out. For this reason, intervention is best conducted by a qualified, trained professional called an interventionist. This individual is highly skilled in overcoming the barriers to getting drug rehab treatment. They can often get through to the addict when no one else can, helping them to realize exactly where they stand in terms of their addiction, and showing them there is a path out of addiction – if they’re willing to get treatment.
