ALLENTOWN, PA (PRWEB) April 26, 2014
Allentown PA Alcohol Drug Rehab is announcing a new intervention program is now established and ready to serve families and friends of drug addicts in Allentown and surrounding locations.
The pain and agony that these beloved friends of a drug addict go through each day is sad. They see the person that all of them love and care for slipping away as drugs become more important than relationships, work, or personal responsibility. All of that goes out the door because all that matters is the next fix or party to attend. Feelings of anger and resentment fester inside families, and they have done all that they could to help their loved one in Allentown. They are at their wit's end.
Calling on a professional interventionist is a first step toward bringing all the damage caused by the individual to their awareness. The intervention process starts with a professional meeting with parents and friends, listening to their stories of pain and anguish, and forming a picture of where the practicing addict currently is in his or her life. Then, the intervention plans are made by choosing the environment and time. They can take place either at a home or another location that would be considered neutral by the drug addict. When the intervention itself takes place, family and friends get an opportunity to clearly state their emotions and feelings around what damage and carnage the addict's behaviors and attitudes have done. The addict may not like what he or she is hearing, and could leave the event as soon as it starts. But some addicts will truly listen, see tears of pain rolling down the faces of people they know and love, and understand what their drug addiction has cost them. The interventionist will have a list of consequences ready for the addict if they decide not to enter residential treatment immediately. Those might include loss of a car, loss of job, closed credit cards, and getting kicked out of their home.
The drug addict is clearly given a choice to make. Which one he or she does make is not up to the family and friends. All they can do is follow the intervention process through its completion, and hope the addict selects treatment over addiction.
