Upper Darby, PA (PRWEB) April 27, 2014 -- Upper Darby PA Alcohol Drug Rehab is launching a new intervention program for loved ones of adults and adolescents caught up in the torrid disease of drug addiction who are seeking outside help in Upper Darby and nearby towns.
Time after time, family members and friends desperately reach out to do whatever they can and get the drug addict help and support. Yet they have seen their efforts thwarted time and time again because the addict would rather have more drugs than listen to other people. Addicts can be stubborn and hard-headed people, but they are also suffering under the weight of their inner pain and misery.
Intervention causes a major disruption among people that abuse drugs day after day. While the drug addict is always looking for his or her next fix, family members and friends sit by and feel an incredible sense of helplessness. Drugs like Ketamine, XTC, Darvocet, heroin and many others become more important to the addict than personal responsibility.
The Upper Darby intervention program develops a strategy to bring truth and reality into the active addict's life. An experienced interventionist, which is a person that has full credentials in this field, will sit down and plan with the addict's family and friends on how to get the active addict into treatment. They gather and create concrete options where the person understands there are just two choices. One is to listen, hear and accept how much pain they have cost their loved ones. Instead of continuing this destructive path, they decide that drug treatment is a good idea. The other option that drug addicts do have is simply to ignore what everyone is telling him or her, accept whatever consequences are laid down and go get more drugs. Consequences can include getting kicked out of the house, taking away car keys, closure of all credit cards and bank accounts, and having no contact with family members.
The power of an intervention has led many clients to find abstinence and sobriety for the rest of their lives. The interventionists that are staff members understand how painful and agonizing living in the midst of drug addiction is for both user and his or her family.
