HELPING SOMEONE GET OFF DRUGS
Do you know how to identify when a friend or loved one is struggling with addiction? If someone you know is relying on drugs or alcohol to get through their life, you can help them by spotting the real source of their problems.
Although doing an intervention can be highly stressful it is oftentimes the very thing that saves an addict’s life.
After working with hundreds of people who struggled with addiction over the last eight years, I’ve often wondered if our country’s drug problem has an end in sight. I’ve seen addiction in my fellow man in one form or another all my life.
When people hear that alcohol is the most addictive drug in the world, their instantaneous response is usually one of disbelief. Most people do not believe this to be true, because after all, everyone drinks, right? Certainly, except for perhaps cigarettes, and maybe sugar or coffee, alcohol is the most commonly used substance that could be considered to be addictive.
