What is intervention?
An intervention is a dialog between a drug or alcohol addict and the addict’s family or loved ones. Often, these conversations are supervised by a specialist who directs the conversation in the right direction. The purpose of an intervention is to allow the addict and family members express themselves in a productive manner.
Why intervention is important?
Intervention is one of the most important steps for rehabilitation. It is important to have a structured dialogue to prevent the interaction from degrading into blaming, arguing, and yelling. It may get very difficult to convince the addict to express himself or herself again. An open conversation that goes in the right direction will produce the right results and guide the addict towards recovery.
