When is it time for an Intervention?
An intervention could be what saves the life of your loved one in need of drug or alcohol recovery. Don’t wait until they hit rock bottom. An intervention is never an easy process, but it can make a difference and perhaps even save the life of your loved one.
Since people do not have to use drugs or drink alcohol daily to have a problem, it may be difficult to recognize the signs of addiction. Please remember that even if a person shows some of the signs or symptoms, it does not necessarily mean that they have a drug or alcohol addiction. The presence of some of these symptoms could relate to stress, depression or other problems, which may or may not be related to substance abuse. Let us help you and your loved one decide if Brighton Center for Recovery’s help is appropriate. Below are three checklists of common drug and alcohol abuse symptoms that can help you identify the signs of addiction.
According to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, the purpose of a substance abuse intervention is to help the person to recognize the signs of addiction, take the steps necessary to address the addiction and lead them to the help they need.
If you are planning an intervention, or need to be referred to an intervention specialist, please call a Brighton Center for Recovery Customer Service Representative at 1-877-976-2371 to discuss dependency/addiction assessment. We can help you to make arrangements for an on-site intervention and/or schedule an addiction assessment.
