When addiction has crept into people’s lives, they are often unaware of the reality of their own situation. It can be difficult for those who care to feel like they can help. If a friend or family member is showing signs of addiction, it’s important to learn how to talk to them about it.
Early intervention can save lives, bring friends and family closer together, and pave the way for long-term recovery. While someone who is using drugs may not be open to talking about it, you can get support through early intervention programs. Solution Based Treatment serves California residents who are in need of intervention for addiction treatment and recovery. Find out more about our services today by reaching out online, or calling 833.999.1941.
The Importance of an Early Intervention
Early intervention has to begin with communication. Nobody is born knowing exactly what to say to someone who is addicted to alcohol or other substances, so it’s important to begin with an open mind. Mental health and addiction experts offer some insights for how we can approach intervention:
- Give the person your undivided attention and listen more, talk less.
- Start with your intentions centered around compassion, kindness, and understanding.
- Stay consistent in your support for their recovery, and reliable in how you speak and behave around them.
- Set boundaries with this person, and make sure he or she clearly understands the things you can and can’t tolerate.
- Support the loved one in receiving professional help through counseling and treatment.
Family intervention can be particularly successful when the family takes an active role in helping their loved one. Regardless of the stage of addiction someone is in, substance use rehab is the best way to guarantee long-term recovery.
If someone you care about has fallen down the rabbit hole of addiction, you don’t have to try to help them all by yourself. Take advantage of SBT’s collective expertise in medical and psychological treatment, just a quick online message or call away, at 833.999.1941.
