Amarillo, TX (PRWEB) April 23, 2014
Alcohol Drug Rehab is pleased to announce that it has started a new intervention program for individuals suffering from drug addiction issues in Amarillo and surrounding Panhandle towns.
Drug addicts can find themselves totally lost in a sea of methamphetamines, cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other substances. They do not care about their family or friends. Jobs and relationships can go away, and there is little notice from the chronic drug abuser. All he or she is concerned with is getting more of their favorite substance. At some point, people who care so much for their loved one may have run out of options. This is where a professional interventionist can step in and provide help.
An intervention interrupts the daily pattern of a drug addict. The interventionist in Amarillo will work with family and friends to see what direction they choose to take in getting the ill person into treatment. What takes place over one or two meetings between all concerned parties is an airing of emotional problems, identification of consequences that can be presented should the person not stop their drug abuse, and setting up intervention plans.
Family members interested in having an intervention happen should know these professionals have done their educational work. They know what to expect from an addict who chooses either to enter residential treatment or stay out on the streets. During the actual intervention, it is explained to the addict how he or she has seen the person act plus how it has affected them personally. The drug addict may not care and sit in denial over anything brought up in the session. Consequences for not choosing treatment might include shutting down all bank accounts. Other consequences can be addressed between the interventionist and family. Both sides know the goal here is to get the loved one off drugs and change their lives.
