An Intervention is an organized, clinically-guided attempt by family and friends to get a loved one who is abusing alcohol or other drugs to accept treatment.
Because denial is a symptom of the disease of addiction, it is common for individuals with alcohol or other drug dependence to not see that they have a problem that is hurting themselves and others. Structured interventions have given some individuals with the disease of addiction a powerful enough dose of reality to propel them into treatment.
"Using the services of a professional interventionist is one way that family and friends can try to get a loved one into treatment and on a path to recovery"
