Drug And Alcohol Intervention Services In Manitoba

It is not uncommon for a family to be afraid of attempting an intervention on their loved one, as there can be a fear of pushing them away further and something bad happening to them. It is important to understand that an intervention is normally the last course of action taken to help a loved one get into a drug and alcohol treatment program. This is usually done after the family has exhausted all other means and has no where else to turn to but to bring in a third party. An intervention is not about pushing the addict away further, but it is all about really helping them understand how devastating their addiction is on the family and on themselves. The family and friends who are in attendance at the intervention will have a chance to say their part and really be honest with the addict about how their addiction has impacted their lives and lives of their family and friends. Interventions can be very successful as it sets a bottom line for the addict, because in some cases one or two family members may be enabling the addict, making it easy for them to use drugs and alcohol and not seek out help. Once the enabling stops the addict is really backed into a corner and will have to make a choice of either being an addict with no support, or seeking out some kind of help. It may sound like very harsh tactics, but it is important to know that this is a last resort, and a bottom line must be set in order for the addict to come full circle.

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.
