Interventions Canada are here to get you set up with a professional intervention that can help your entire family.
Looking at the larger picture, watching someone that you love suffer from alcoholism day in and day out is uncomfortable and emotionally painful.
The definition of alcoholism states that people use alcohol because they like what it does to their brains. The chronic, prolonged use of alcohol changes the brain in fundamental and long-lasting ways.
Convincing a person that is suffering from alcohol dependency that they need help is a hard pitch coming from a family member and/or friend.
Having a professional interventionist to help with the planning process, and seeking the best help for your loved one can be the life-saving decision that leads to the alcoholic receiving treatment and gaining recovery.
Interventionists direct families and friends toward medical support, detox programs, and treatment programs. They also educate families on how to face the realities of their loved one’s alcohol abuse, with the end goal of getting the whole family on the path to healing and recovery.
National statistics have shown that alcohol interventions are sought out more than any other interventions.
