Drug And Alcohol Interventionist Programs In British Columbia

The province of British Columbia has always had a large number of drug and alcohol treatment centers located all throughout the province, both privately funded and government funded, or low-cost and no cost. Not every addict is 100% willing and wanting to get help, and it can take a great deal of convincing to help them understand that treatment is the best course of action as the addiction may be getting worse. One of the most successful ways in helping an addict understand they need to get help is through drug and alcohol intervention, which is a means of brining in a third party who can help an addict understand and see their addiction is destroying their lives, and they need to do something about it. This is done through coordinating with the family and friends, especially people whom are influential over the addict, and they all come together to say their part and tell the addict how their addiction has impacted their lives as loved ones. Throughout the province of British Columbia, there are just over 25 different intervention groups available and located in different cities and towns all throughout the province. Intervention groups usually have direct lines to drug and alcohol treatment centers and can help line a facility up that will be best suited for the addict. Because an intervention can happen very quickly a treatment center must be lined up for the addict to enter into right away.

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people.
