On this episode, we will talk about interventions: what they are, who needs one, and how to go about doing one.
When a loved one is struggling with an active addiction, it is an exremely powerless and oftentimes hopeless feeling. Because the symptoms of the disease of addiction are behavioral as well as physical, and denial is such a huge component of the disease as well, it is difficult (if not impossible) to reason with an active alcoholic/addict. Many people turn to an intervention to get help for an addict who is not able to break the cycle of addiction.
But where to start? On this episode we will walk through the steps of an intervention, as well as provide advice on what works, and what doesn't. We will talk about ways a family can be helpful to an active addict, both with an intervention and in general, share our own personal experiences with interventions, and talk to a nationally certified recovery coach.
