Family Intervention Defined
Family interventions are extremely important to the integrity and emotional health of a family if one of the key members has become destructive or has a problem that is getting perpetually worse. Family members often take the brunt of the blame by an alcoholic or addict unwilling to get help, and it is family members that most often enable an alcoholic or addict before they decide to get help at treatment facilities through an intervention or other similar service.

Myth #2: "I might be worrying to much, I'm just exaggerating the problem and it actually isn't that bad."

Truth #2: This is common self-talk among family members that have continually enabled the drug and alcohol use of the addicted individual. If you are seeking help, chances are it IS that bad. Take a moment to reason honestly with yourself and choose what is best for YOU and your loved one.
