Trying to awaken a loved one to the dangers of an abusive substance, one they’re foolishly using, is a heartbreaking exercise, one that can be incredibly tough. Unfortunately, abuse and dependency does bring out the worst in people, increasing feelings of paranoia and destructive behavior. We need the services of someone adept at dealing with the tough times ahead. We need to seek out an interventionist.
When the Last Straw is Near
There will come a time, perhaps not so far in the future, when the beloved individual is so under the thumb of the addiction that he or she will do anything to get enough money to keep up the habit they’ve become hooked on. A loved one will steal from their own children and parents, an action that would once have been impossible to comprehend in someone we thought we knew so well, but this is exactly what happens, the family member taking to the streets of Reno to find their next hit with stolen cash.
It’s with the expert help of a Reno interventionist that we can cut our loved one off from these vices, break the pattern of abuse and addiction before they’re lost to us.
Planning The Intervention
Forming a support team from the most influential members of the family is one of the primary duties of the Reno interventionist. Treatment options and therapy centers will be researched and on hand for the troubled individual, as well as data illustrating relevant statistics. For example, methamphetamine is a drug of choice in Nevada now, a chemically constructed substance that’s being made in hidden labs, and one that’s become relatively easy to find(whitehouse.gov).
Regardless of the root cause of the addiction, family and friends must show support for the treatment that is to come. The Pain of withdrawal and the challenges of recovery will be terrible, but they can be navigated with the help of the support team. Of course, none of this can get off the ground without acceptance. This is the true reason behind the emotional power that drives an intervention. The single mind and heart formed by the interventionist, composed of many family members and friends, is there to penetrate the initial resistance and denial, crumbling barriers until they reach a point of acceptance, a place where treatment can be accepted.
