DRUG INTERVENTION

Drug Intervention is the primary and most important degree of recovery.

The first thing to do is to find the right treatment for the addict. When you get the person to agree to go to rehab. It is not time to find a rehab. It is time to go. This is a very critical point of the intervention. How to find a rehab is all covered in the section Rehabilitation. Every single thing has to be ready.

Drug Intervention is the primary and most important degree of recovery.

The first step is to determine which type of treatment best suit the addict.  In order to properly introduce the concept of Rehabilitation to the addict, all proper steps should already be in play.  This means everything must be planned and ready, this is a crucial ingredient because when the addict agrees to Rehabilitation, this is the time to go, not the time to locate a rehab…timing and organization is key, when the person agrees to go to rehab. How to find, a rehab is all covered in the section Rehabilitation found below.

What is ruining the addict?

Many addicts will have situations in their present and past that seem to be an unbearable event, with many pertaining to drugs.  An example would be someone losing a loved one ( friend, family member, significant other, child) due addiction to drugs or alcohol.  A close friend or someone in the family can see tons of reasons why the addict should quit using drugs.  However, these reasons are not REAL to the addict. On a higher note there are reasons the addict will see as a reason to quit using, they are problems that mean something to their life. These problems will be essential to discover, and they can be used during the intervention to prompt the addict to get help.

What pressures does the addict feel now?

The addict won’t have the same grasp of reality as a non addict.  An example, the addict might have no job, friends, and income, have health problems but still think they are “fine.”  More people overdose or come close to death and go use the very next day.  Now this is unthinkable and crazy but it is all part of the pain the addict is really feeling inside.

Keeping this in mind, the addict will feel added pressure here and there, which may influence the decision to reach out for help or continue to drown themselves with drugs and/or alcohol.

These influences can be pending legal charges that could result in jail time, and the threat of losing a significant other or child is a possible situation, where the addict feels enough pressure to fight the addiction and turn for help. The influences stated above may not apply to your own situation but I can be certain there are pressures the addict is dealing with that can come to mind that will help motivate the addict into treatment. When the addict is pushed out of their “addiction comfort zone” this is when a decision is made.  When someone or something pulls them away from this zone then something can be done.  At times an addict will only seek help to avoid jail or other reasons, which may be true, but this could be what gets the addict in a safe controlled environment to which help is obtained.  Remember, those who do not have access to money, place to live, no legal issues, around people who agree with the drug use will seldom seek help.  They will continue to believe “I don’t have a problem” this is extremely important to understand and is crucial in attempting an intervention.
