According to The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) more than 42% of men and nearly 22% of women admitted to having 3 or more alcoholic drinks per day. This number is staggering when we consider the effects that binge drinking or sustained drinking can have on our loved ones’ personal and professional lives.
In the state of Nevada there were 70 fatalities in 2011 related to alcohol-related accidents, translating to 28.5% of motor vehicle accidents being caused by those who are legally impaired. If your loved one is suffering from the inability to stop drinking and is at risk of damaging his or her life or the lives of others, an alcohol intervention in Nevada may provide the best opportunity to get your family member the dedicated help that he or she needs.
Interventions are for family and friends of loved ones with a drinking problem to come together under the guidance of an intervention specialist. This specialist can help set up a plan of action that will evolve over the course of 2 to 3 days. The intervention will provide a safe and secure place for your loved one to recognize his or her addiction problem. It will also allow for your loved one to experience a natural and honest progression towards wanting and asking for help.
The intervention process will help you to feel more educated and have a better understanding in why your loved one has developed an addiction issue. It will also help you achieve the self-empowerment you will need to stay strong not just for your loved one, but for your own self during the recovery process.
