Drug And Alcohol Interventionist Services In Alberta
Drug and alcohol intervention can be a very effective tool in helping a loved one seek out help and enter a drug treatment center. A drug intervention is designed to bring an addict to a point of wanting to get some kind of help and understanding that their addiction has caused a great deal of pain and suffering for themselves and others. It is not about forcing an addict into treatment but helping them see that treatment is really the only option as the family may come to the decision of no longer supporting them unless they get help. There are just over five different intervention groups located in the province of Alberta with many of them located in Calgary and Edmonton. Interventionists are trained professionals, and in many cases, they are former addicts who have become qualified addiction's counselors or even psychologists and help coordinate interventions with families. For the most part, an intervention can be very successful, because it does give the family a chance to speak their mind and tell the addict exactly how they feel about their addiction. All of this does not mean that the family has stopped loving the addict, they simply just do not agree with how his or her life is going, and they want to see them get some help and make some positive changes.
