Interventions Canada has done much research while compiling information on addiction interventions, the nature of addictions, and their effects on identified patients and families.
Addiction can be a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and causes reactive self-sabotaging behavior; however, it can be arrested with abstinence and treatment.
There is no single treatment plan that is appropriate and fits all persons suffering with addictions. By calling Interventions Canada, families are able to utilize professionals that can help them with treatment for their loved ones’ addictions.
Finding the best treatment for a person who is dealing with complex addiction is best left to a professional addiction specialist and/or Certified Professional Interventionist.
No addicted person needs to die from using drugs and acting out on behaviors related to addiction. Recovery is possible.
For many years, families and friends have not known what to do with their addicted person, often using shame or guilt as a way to get the person to stop using substances. This approach does not work.
The old approach was to let addicts/alcoholics hit their bottom. That does not have to happen anymore. Many resources can be accessed, including our services. At Interventions Canada, through the process of addiction interventions, we can answer your questions about addiction in your family.
