Intervention for Family Members
Staging a family drug intervention can alert an addict to the severity of their addiction and the impact it has on their life and the lives of the people they care about. It’s tricky to know when to intervene, but there are some behavioral signs that can help you determine the right time to act. Drug addiction is expensive to maintain, so there may be an increase in borrowing or withdrawing money from a family account. An individual’s normal behavior may become more aggressive or secretive. Complications with daily activities, such studies or work, may arise. There may also be a marked decline in health, accompanied by a lack of care in personal appearance and decreased energy. If these signs arise or if the family member is openly using, it may be time to stage a family drug intervention.
