In many cases, the loved ones of the drug victim can make the treatment hopeless because their intervention is going to be very emotional and very long. In an attempt to help the victim realize the extent of addiction, then land up doing a lot of point out and comparison making the victim feel at guilt than feeling better.
Those under addiction are already guilty of what they do, and when the dear ones point out the hurt they are causing to others, it gets worse. While planning the treatment part, the physician should plan with the family about the dos and don’ts and the way the family has to deal with the victim to ensure success of the rehabilitation program. This can go a long way in keeping the counseling process a success.
However, when the patient is finally in to the real world there are going to be probable interventions from other friends and peers, many are not going to listen. Anonymous meetings are in place to help the patient be resistant to relapse.
If you are relative to the addict no matter how hard you love him/her and how good you are in explaining the importance of giving up on drugs, it is not going to be very easy for them to understand what you are coming to say. It takes lot of time for them to realize, because while under the influence of drugs they are not in anyway going to understand the ill effects. Their brain is simply not working straight.
The main purpose of intervention is to let the addict open about addiction. Invention is the beginning phase, the time immediately after you have identified abuse. This is a phase filled with high degree of self-defense and you can never expect religious submission to what you are saying. Be good and convincing to make the addict walk in o the rehabilitation center and trust the rest to the professional. Treating someone with addictive behavior is not as easy and it is not one size fit for all job for everyone.
