While I have been a Certified National Drug and Alcohol Interventionist and addiction specialist for many years, it is this widening epidemic of prescription drug abuse that convinced me that we needed a website specifically focused on intervention.

Celebrate Hope, the California faith based Christian drug rehab program offered at Hope By The Sea, offers a treatment component that deals specifically with prescription drug abuse treatment. "Over the past few years we have worked with many patients who have become addicted to powerful prescription drugs and the percentage of clients with this particular addiction continues to rise. While only two years ago four out of 10 patients presented with this addiction, now that number has steadily increased to six out of 10 patients," reports Robert Nicholl, Admissions and Intervention Specialist at Celebrate Hope. Mr. Nicholl continues: "The onset of prescription drug addiction surprises many people, often resulting from receiving a pain management prescription following surgery, an injury or a chronic condition. Within a relatively short period of time dependence can develop followed quickly by addiction."
Addiction to prescription pain medication does not discriminate, the availability of these medications in American households and the fact that these products are legal adds to the addict's ability to rationalize and ignore their addiction. When family members realize that their loved one is severely addicted and needs treatment they are often met with resistance. Encouraging and convincing one to "go to rehab" often requires an intervention. "While I have been a Certified National Drug and Alcohol Interventionist and addiction specialist for many years, it is this widening epidemic of prescription drug abuse that convinced me that we needed a website specifically focused on our intervention services," offers Mr. Nicholl.
The impact of addiction on a person's life is evident through loss of things like jobs, relationships and self-care. Perhaps several attempts and conversations have been initiated to help them without success. This is because the person trying to help is often too close and doesn’t have the professional background to be both emotionally neutral and aware of resources that match the needs of the addict. Mr. Nicholl further adds: "We see this to be particularly true with those addicted to prescription pain drugs, as the typical potential patient is now a middle-aged executive who finds his or her self struggling with an unexpected life changing addiction to opioid based pain medicine."
