The Importance of a Drug Intervention

Addiction is a chronic, progressive, and fatal disease if left untreated. Drug and alcohol

addiction takes a toll on everyone it touches, including the addict and their loved ones. The

United States is in the midst of a drug epidemic, particularly when it comes to prescription

painkillers and heroin. People are dying every day from drug overdoses, and 78 Americans die

each day due to an opioid overdose. Because of the fatal nature of addiction, there comes a

point where action needs to be taken to get an addict the treatment and support they need

and deserve. Unfortunately, it is rarely the addict themselves that recognizes the severity of

their addiction and reaches out for support. Oftentimes, family members and friends must take

sincere action to save the addict’s life. This is when a drug intervention comes into play.

What is a Drug Intervention?

A drug intervention is when loved ones come together, often with the support of a professional

interventionist, to lovingly confront the addict about the severity of their substance abuse.

Typically, an addict has no idea how dangerous their behaviour is and how far their addiction

has progressed. A drug intervention is designed to openly confront the addict and tell them

how their addiction is affecting both them and the addict. The goal of a drug intervention is to

get the addict to accept the reality of their drug use and make a sincere decision to seek

treatment. A drug intervention is not about fighting, blaming, or shaming; rather, it is a time

to face the addict and express concerns in a loving, rational manner.

Addicts are often in denial about their addiction. Because of this denial, the addict may have

little insight into the dangerous reality of their drug and alcohol use. And if they refuse or are

unable to admit that their substance abuse is a problem, then they are highly unlikely to

change said behaviour. Even if the negative consequences of their addiction are recognizable

by those around them, the addict may not recognize the problem themselves. An intervention

performed by skilled and experienced interventionists can break through this dangerous denial

and help the addict recognize the severity of their situation.

Is an Intervention Necessary?

Addicts are skilled at manipulating and hiding their drug use, so much so that loved one may

vacillate for weeks, months, and even years about whether or not a drug intervention is

necessary. Simply put, if you are questioning whether or not an intervention is necessary, then

it probably is. Here are some signs to look out for that may signal that a drug intervention is


1. There has been an increase in the addict’s lying behaviours

2. They have been stealing from loved ones

3. They have been getting in trouble with the law

4. The addict is putting their life in danger

5. You have found drug paraphernalia, like needles or crack pipes

6. They have gotten in trouble at their work or school

7. They are homeless due to their addiction

These are just a few signs that may indicate an intervention is necessary. But you do not have

to wait for such extreme behaviour to take place before holding an intervention. Addiction is

deadly - the time to seek help is now. The sooner the addict gets help, the better.
