Crisis Intervention

Crisis intervention is often necessary when drug and alcohol abuse has taken over a person's life; crisis intervention, usually performed by a substance abuse specialist, highlights the consequences and suffering drugs and alcohol have inflicted upon an individual's life. Crisis intervention to the extreme is an attempt to interrupt an individual's drug or alcohol abuse because of increasing health problems or legal and family troubles. Most of the time the person who is abusing drugs or alcohol is unaware that he or she even needs a crisis intervention. The disease of addiction and dependence is very tricky and denial of a problem often prevents a person from seeing the need for a crisis intervention. All too often this person blames outside situations or other people instead of seeing their alcohol or drug abuse as being the root of the problem. This life changing revelation that is at the heart of a crisis intervention.

If you love someone who has a problem with drugs and alcohol and have found this site you are no doubt filled with frustration and confusion. You may be feeling like the situation is hopeless since everything you do fails to change the person or his or her actions. You see the need for a crisis intervention but the loved one in question may not even be admitting that there is a problem. What do you do next? You can't just sit idly by and watch things get worse can you?

Fortunately there is a solution. Crisis intervention can be a beginning to a successful treatment recovery plan and does not have to begin willingly in order to be effective. The National Institute on Drug Abuse site shows that crisis interventions involving drugs and alcohol do not need to begin willingly on the part of the client in order to eventually be effective. Crisis interventions often come up due to consequences with the legal system, personality problems such as anger and aggression or family conflicts that are at a breaking point.
