How Do You Conduct An Intervention ?  

Alcoholism and drug addictions are creating mental problems all around, so much so that almost everyone seems to know at least one human being suffering to this condition. However, it is the closest relatives and friends who have to take care of these addicted souls. People undergoing such addictions should be dealt with very carefully and with love. Such a method of handling them is called intervention.

Conducting an intervention with an addict requires a lot of mental strength and patience on the helper’s part. Usually, the helper can be in the form of a parent, guardian, a counselor or a close friend. They have to talk to the addicted person in an objective and rational fashion to help him understand the dangerousness of the situation he is in. This should be done in a non-accusatory way and tone. The person should never be, in any way be made to feel guilty about the situation he has put himself to.

The foremost thing an interventionist should do is to find out the cause or the reason for the addiction. Most of the time, it is seen that the addiction is a resultant of a deep resentment towards any failed relationship or the system. If somehow, that grief is wiped out from the addict’s mind, the interventionist may be successful in his attempt to free the addict of his addiction.

Before conducting an intervention, it must be remembered that it is neither an easy process nor a short one. But it can be made a smooth journey if only the interventionist tries to relate with the addict and his story in some way or the other. He should never judge the affected person, but simply think of his problem as his own and then try to solve it. That will ensure a speedy recovery and a successful intervention.
